January 8, 2024—Summary map of recent unrest at Kīlauea Volcano

Detailed Description

This map shows recent unrest at Kīlauea volcano. Yellow circles mark earthquake locations from November 30, 2023 through January 8, 2024, as recorded by HVO seismometers. Seismicity has been focused in several different regions of the volcano: the south caldera, the East Rift connector, the Southwest Rift connector (though at lower rates here than previous months), and near the Kamakaia Hills in the middle Southwest Rift Zone. Colored fringes in the map indicate areas of ground deformation from November 30–December 31, 2023, as measured by satellite radar. Each color cycle represents 1.5 cm (0.6 in) of ground motion toward the satellite, indicating uplift associated with magma accumulation.
