Kīlauea summit overflight - May 13

More of Kīlauea's lava lake surface in Halema‘uma‘u crater has solidified in recent weeks, evident in this May 13 aerial view

Detailed Description

More of Kīlauea's lava lake surface in Halema‘uma‘u crater has solidified in recent weeks, as is evident in this aerial view taken yesterday, May 13. However, gas emissions and small patches of active lava on the surface indicate that the eruption continues. Most recently, gas emissions were measured as 225 tonnes per day on May 12. The bluish-tinged plume of volcanic gas can be seen emitting from Halema‘uma‘u's west vent complex (upper left) in this photo. USGS image by K. Mulliken.
