Station HRPKE maintenance
HVO technician Steven Fuke checks the solar panel at station HRPKE while conducting station maintenance on September 1. HVO remote monitoring stations are powered via solar panels and a suite of batteries. Remote stations such as HRPKE are telemetered, meaning that data collected at the remote station is transferred to the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory and can be viewed in near real-time.
