January 25, 2022 — Kīlauea summit fieldwork

Detailed Description

Emily Bryant, a geologist and field engineer visiting from the USGS Cascades Volcano Observatory, installs an upgraded webcam on the east rim of Halema‘uma‘u at the summit of Kīlauea. The active lava lake is in the western half of the crater, in the upper right portion of the photo.
