March 4 overflight of Kīlauea summit and East Rift Zone

View of Kīlauea Volcano's south caldera area, with the margin of the 1982 lava flows and a portion of Crater Rim Drive

Detailed Description

In this view of Kīlauea Volcano's south caldera area, the margin of the 1982 lava flows are visible (right), as is a portion of Crater Rim Drive. During World War II, bulldozers were used to create mounds in an effort to prevent planes from landing in this area of Kīlauea. These mounds are visible in the lower-left side of this aerial photo, just beyond the 1982 lava flow edge. USGS image by K. Mulliken on March 4, 2021.
