Detailed Description

A view of Halema‘uma‘u on June 11, 2021, at 12:20 p.m. HST. Although eruptive activity has paused at the Kīlauea summit, HVO geologists still monitor the lava lake and summit area regularly. They make observations to note any physical changes in the landscape or visual changes in gas emissions. Field crews also look and listen for rockfalls and measure the depth of the crusted-over lava lake to monitor for any changes. USGS photo by J.M. Chang.
