News Alert - Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano Eruption Revealed Big Crater, Scientist Rush In To Study

Hawaii's Kilauea volcano may be disrupting life in paradise with its bursts of ash and bright-orange lava, but it also has scientists wide-eyed, eager to advance what's known about volcanos.

The good news is: Volcanos reveal secrets when they're rumbling, which means Kilauea is producing a bonanza of information.

Clear conditions at Pu'u O'o provided good views into the crater. The crater floor collapsed, and the lava lake drained, a little more than a month ago. The crater now has a funnel-shape goemetry with a deepter cylindrical shaft with rubbles fills the base of the shaft. The deepest hole is about 300 meters deep.

Beginning on June 3, lava from fissure 8 entered the ocean at Kapoho Bay. By June 6, lava had completely filled Kapoho Bay and built a delta that now extends over a mile from shore. A helicopter overflight of kih-luh-WAY'-uh Volcano's lower East Rift Zone on June 6, 2018, documented lava-seawater interactions at the ocean entry and the formation of a while plume called laze. Lava entering the ocean builds a platform of new land known as a lava delta. This new land appears stable, but hides a foundation of loose rubble that can collapse into the ocean.

While scientists monitored Big Island lava flows in 1955 and 1960, equipment then was far less sophisticated. Given new technology, they can now gather and study an unprecedented volume of data.
