December 23, 2022 — Mauna Loa post-eruption GPS survey

Detailed Description

A tripod on Mauna Loa's summit and holding a GPS antenna for the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory's post-eruption survey of Mauna Loa was iced in during the recent Kona low storm. The ice broke away easily and there was no damage to the equipment. This survey will supplement HVO's continuous network and provide dense spatial sampling of co-eruptive deformation of the volcano.
