Detailed Description

This fissure eruption on Kīlauea's East Rift Zone in March 2011 reminds us of how exciting it can be to live on or near active volcanoes, but also why we need to be aware of the hazards they pose. Volcano Awareness Month in January 2014 is an opportunity to learn more about Hawai‘i's volcanoes from the USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory scientists who monitor and study them.
