Kīlauea summit eruption - September 13, 2023

Detailed Description

From Kīlauea caldera floor overlooking the downdropped block, HVO scientists had a beautiful view of the six erupting vents on the floor of the downdropped block.  HVO scientists were on the caldera floor retrieving seismic nodes, which had been deployed during the Kīlauea Seismic Imaging Project earlier this year.
