61G continues to pour into the Pacific Ocean, as eruptive activity on Kilauea’s east rift zone persists. Light north northeast winds allowed us to observe Pu‘u ‘O‘o’s lava pond consistently bubbling and circulating, before a thick band of showers approaching from the east socked in the area. And although we were rained on a bit, it didn’t prevent us from completing our documentation of the March 5th breakout. Its leading edge is approximately a mile above the crest of Pulama Pali, advancing over the path of 61G’s main tube, while several other trailing lobes continue to spread out on the flow field. The new Kamokuna delta is slowly increasing in size, with a multitude of fingers of lava entering the sea along the new 300′ stretch of coastline, generating a robust steam plume that blew to the south. The timing of our flight was perfect, as the curtain of rain brought our flight observations to an end.
