I decided to split the show notes for each eruption into their own post. Just because it was getting a little long. This is meant to be read and watched along with or after listening to S04E05 of Borealis Meditation Podcast (hence the lack of text).
Summit Overflow (Late April)
Drone footage and time lapse of Summit Collapse
Lower East Rift Zone (Puna)
Here are a few maps for some context on the geography of the eruption:
Time lapse showing the filling of Pu’u O’o crater with the perched lava pond in March and early April. Below is the late April collapse of Pu’u O’o. Now remember I said the weather was super shit so the thermal camera is what was used to “see” the collapse. You might have to loop it a few times but you can see where the lava lake was at about the same level and then the drop to an open vent.
Below the collapse is an over flight and 3D model. So remember the earlier lava pond all high up in the crater? Look at that change!!!!
Down the rift zone…..
That is what I have for the Kilauea 2018 major activity.
