Volcano Awareness Month: Past Eruptions Near the Summit of Kīlauea

Kīlauea has erupted five times (and counting!) since 2020 within Kaluapele, the caldera at the summit. Each eruption has been accompanied by a period of unrest in the form of earthquakes and ground deformation both within and outside the summit caldera. Join University of Hawai‘i at Hilo geology professor Steve Lundblad as he explores past eruptions near the summit of Kīlauea and structural features such as the Koa‘e fault zone. Learn what current monitoring observations and past eruptions can tell us about where we might expect to see future eruptions and where lava is less likely to erupt.

When: January 16 at 7:00 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

Where: Kīlauea Visitor Center auditorium

Part of Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park’s ongoing After Dark in the Park series of programs and USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory’s Volcano Awareness Month.
