Poor views at Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō...

Detailed Description

On the south rim of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō, on Kīlauea's East Rift Zone, an HVO geologist surrounded by thick steam and gas performs regular upkeep to the west pit time-lapse camera. This camera was relocated again at the end of January due to continued subsidence and instability in its previous location. The camera's field of view encompasses the entire rim of the west pit and the surrounding area (see time-lapse camera images below).
