[MOcam] Mokuʻāweoweo Caldera from South Rim

This image is from a research camera positioned on the south rim of Mokuʻāweoweo, Mauna Loa's summit caldera, in Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park. The camera looks north-northwest, focusing on the southern part of the caldera. The 1940 cone is just right of center; the 1949 cone is on the caldera rim at left. The high point of Mauna Loa's summit is in the background.

Mount Rainier, WA simplified hazards map

This map shows areas that could be affected by debris flows, lahars, lava flows, and pyroclastic flows from Mount Rainier if events similar in size to past events occurred today. Because small lahars are more common than large ones, most lahars would be less extensive than the hazard zone shown on the map and a few would be more extensive. The lahar hazard is not equal in

These views of Mauna Loa are from near the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory looking toward the west. The view on left is typical during strong trade winds that blow the plume from Halema‘uma‘u Crater southwest of the summit area. The view on right is common during slack winds that allow vog conditions to develop in the summit area of Kīlauea. During such conditions, people

Visible relief in the hillside exposure is about 800-900 ft. Dusty assemblage deposit occurred approximately between 5100 and 5500 yr B.P. Magma volume of >5 km3, which is a lot for what was probably one eruptive stage. The source lava dome is gone, apparently having disintegrated entirely during extrusion and subsequent glacial interaction. Beige rocks in the
