Detailed Description

Hawaiian Volcano Observatory geologist Michael Poland explaining to international volcano scientists that faulting in this area of Kilauea Volcano can be quantified by looking at the magnitude of fracture opening versus the age of lavas, and that 30 meters of extension has occurred in the past ~600 years.  This was part of a field trip for the CSAV international training program, in which they examine the geology of Kilauea and what that can tell scientists about how the volcano deforms.
