Hawaiian Volcano Observatory (HVO) geophysicists completed the annual GPS survey of Kīlauea in October 2023. On November 8, 2023, HVO staff fixed the MLcam (visual imagery) and MTcam (thermal imagery); both are located near the summit of Mauna Loa.
Photo and Video Chronology – Kīlauea GPS campaign and Mauna Loa summit webcams
The MLcam and the MTcam are located on the rim of Moku‘āweoweo (Mauna Loa's summit caldera). HVO staff serviced these cameras on November 8, 2023. Both are now transmitting images of Mauna Loa's summit caldera.
During the annual Kīlauea GPS campaign, which was completed in October 2023, scientists temporarily deploy a number of GPS instruments at established benchmarks; their recorded positions can be compared with those from previous years to discern subtle patterns of ground deformation associated with volcanic activity.
