Detailed Description

The summit lava lake in Halema‘uma‘u Crater was at a high level earlier in the week, and partly visible from the Jaggar Museum Overlook at times. But over the past few days, the lake level has dropped slightly. Nevertheless, the activity on the surface of the lava lake has been typical of normal activity, with frequent spattering on the lake margins, as shown here. This view looks north from the rim of Halema‘uma‘u Crater, which is closed to the public due to ongoing volcanic hazards.
