Detailed Description

A USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory webcam captured this image of spattering on Kīlauea Volcano's summit lava lake on September 6, 2017. In concert with summit inflation, the lake level had risen to 16.5 m (54 ft) below the vent rim, bringing it into view from the Jaggar Museum Overlook in Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park. When inflation switched to deflation the next day, the lava lake level dropped about 15 m (49 ft). HVO webcam images of Kīlauea can be viewed at https://volcanoes.usgs.gov/volcanoes/kilauea/multimedia_webcams.html.
