Detailed Description

No major changes were observed over the weekend at the lava lake within Halema‘uma‘u crater, at the summit of Kīlauea. On Saturday, February 6, the lake activity seemed slightly diminished, likely due to summit deflation. This photo shows the western fissure. The lava level had dropped slightly in this photo with the reduced activity levels, as shown by the exposed rim in the bottom left portion of the photo. USGS photo by M. Patrick.
