# Resurfacing event on small lava pond in Halemaumau

### Detailed Description

The area of active surface lava has diminished over the past month in Halemaumau crater, at the summit of Kilauea. Today, active surface lava was limited to a small pond, about 20 meters (yards) long. The pond surface was normally covered with a stationary crust, but occasionally resurfaced. This video shows crustal foundering during a resurfacing event. A gust of wind shakes the camera at the start of the video.
