Kīlauea caldera gas mapping—August 3, 2021

On the north margin of the south sulfur bank light-colored deposits are evidence of ongoing alteration from volcanic gas

Detailed Description

On the north margin of the south sulfur bank, which was exposed during the Kīlauea summit collapse events in 2018, light-colored deposits are evidence of the ongoing alteration from volcanic gas emissions. Near the bottom of the photo, bright yellow sulfur deposits, which are a stark contrast to the darker gray basalt rocks, are further evidence of ongoing gas emissions in the area. USGS photo by K.
