Eruption Quick Take: Kīlauea’s Shrinking Lava Lake – lanikai-beach


Kīlaueaʻs open surface has shrunk by almost 25% over the past week, and gas emissions decreased as low lava output continues. According to our estimates based on USGS photos, time-lapse sequences, and map area calculations, the area of active lava on the surface has shrunk by close to 20% on the lake’s southwest margin and 5% on its northeast margin.

We examine the lake through various new time-lapse productions, using web captures, monitoring data, and photos of Kīlauea’s ongoing available courtesy of the @USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory available at .

This short video summarizes the main points in our most recent Kīlauea live update, which includes more in-depth discussion for those interested.
