HILO, Hawaii – The volatile East Rift Zone (and the june 27 lava flow) isn’t the only place where the current eruption of Kilauea volcano can be seen. USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory volcanologist Mike Poland recently talked about the summit eruption. A vent opened within Halema‘uma‘u Crater in 2008, giving geologists two events to observe on Kilauea volcano at the same time. The presentation was part of a special Volcano Awareness Month talk story held at the University of Hawaii-Hilo campus on Wednesday, January 7th. Video by David Corrigan, voice of Sherry Bracken.
