Kīlauea Volcano's East Rift and summit eruptions: 2015 review

Location: UCB 100

Kīlauea Volcano's East Rift and summit eruptions: Events of the past year
Free Public Talk for Volcano Awareness Month

Kīlauea has been erupting nearly continuously since 1983, when a vent, now called Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō, opened on the volcano’s East Rift Zone. Then, in 2008, a second vent opened at the summit of Kīlauea within Halema‘uma‘u Crater.

Both eruptions continue today. Join Matt Patrick, a geologist with the USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory, as he briefly describes the history of these two eruptions and provides in-depth accounts of volcanic activity during the past year, including the ongoing East Rift Zone lava flow that threatened the community of Pāhoa until March 2015 and the overflow of the summit lava lake in April-May 2015.
