“Eruption activity.” Published on Nov. 5, 2014.

No narrative.


“Timelapse of small lobe.” Published on Nov. 2, 2014. A time lapse sequence of a small lava lobe advancing between two dirt piles. Some inflation is visible. November 1, 2014. No narrative.


“Sun sets on lava.” Published on Oct. 30, 2014. Night falls on lava covering a ginger patch in Pahoa. Footage by Volcano Video Productions 10/29/2014. No narration.


“Timelapse one hour.” Published on Oct. 29, 2014. This is a one hour time lapse of a pahoehoe lava flow flowing through a drainage ditch. While it isn’t the best quality (people kept walking in front of the camera!), it shows the two ways these flows grow – by inflating with lava and by overplating themselves with new breakouts. The ditch filled and eventually overflowed. Footage by Volcano Video Productions Oct. 29, 2014. No narrative.
