Station KOHD on Kohala after being rebuilt in September 2023
Station KOHD on Kohala after being rebuilt in September 2023. The site was severely damaged by storms and heavy winds earlier this year. The site houses a seismic monitoring instrument and is also a repeater hub, meaning that it receives and relays data from other stations. During the week of September 11, Hawaiian Volcano Observatory field engineers rebuilt the site. They replaced damaged, rusted, or missing equipment and installed a new 48 volt power system (solar panels and batteries). USGS photo by M. Warren.
