    Ongoing eruptive activity at Kilauea volcano's (Hawai'i) summit has been controlled in part by the evolution of its vent from a 35-m-diameter opening into a collapse crater 150 m across. Geologic observations, in particular from a network of webcams, have provided an unprecedented look at...

    The first eruptive activity at KÄ«lauea Volcano's summit in 25 years began in March 2008 with the opening of a 35-m-wide vent in Halema'uma'u crater. The new activity has produced prominent very-long-period (VLP) signals corresponding with two new behaviors: episodic tremor bursts and small...

    The subaerial eruptive activity at KÄ«lauea Volcano (Hawai'i) for the past 2500 yr can be divided into 3 dominantly effusive and 2 dominantly explosive periods, each lasting several centuries. The prevailing style of eruption for 60% of this time was explosive, manifested by repeated phreatic...
