Eruptive activity continues on Kilauea’s east rift zone, as molten lava was present and visible from Pu‘u ‘O‘o to the Kamokuna ocean entry. Our initial approach to the vent was hampered by low cloud cover, so we made our way over the upper flow field and observed numerous little active lobes, with a bit of overplating occurring on the March 5th breakout. The flow that had been advancing toward Jack Thompson’s has made its way down Pulama Pali and has begun slowly advancing over the coastal plain, just east of the original path of 61G. Quite a bit of lava was visible at the Kamokuna ocean entry, as the firehose encasement once again ruptured, with a ribbon of molten pahoehoe escaping it, while a vigorous breakout near the water’s edge continued to extend the new delta’s reach into the sea. Stress fractures in the bench again continue to increase in width and length, possibly indicating a another collapse in the near future. And lastly, a return to the vent on our way back up the flow field revealed a very active lava pond within Pu‘u ‘O‘o! So incredible to witness!!
