Detailed Description

A view looking north into Halema‘uma‘u on July 2, 2021. Although eruptive activity has paused at the summit of Kīlauea, HVO geologists still monitor the lava lake and summit area regularly. Lava lake surface depths remain the same over the past few weeks. The field crew on July 2 heard two rockfalls originating slightly east (right) of the field of view from the Halema‘uma‘u southern caldera wall. USGS photo by N. Deligne.
