Amazing video. After today's earthquake swarm new fissures are opening up in Hawaii.

Incredible video




The geologists with the USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory have released a first look at the new fissure eruption that just started today between Pu`u `O`o and Napau Crater. According to geologists, the first portion of the video was shot from the air looking southwest at the fissure eruption between Pu`u `O`o and Napau Crater. The fissure segment in the tephra in the foreground opened seconds earlier, and only about 10 minutes after the eruption as a whole started. The cracks through the tephra are in the process of opening, though this can’t be picked out at this distance.

Whoa, nice video. Thanks for posting.


It will be interesting to see if this fissure propagates further, and what kind of lava flow will occur as a result.

At the side of the same page Moorf linked is this link which shows a partial dome collapse nearby at Kilauea ..... I think this event preceded the new fissure ? The footage of the lava lake sloshing about reminded me of mercury in its movement

Amazing video there. I was wondering what was going on in Hawaii, I see all the small quakes on the RSOE site and came straight here for answers

Amazing place.

Apparently,from the seabed floor at the base of the island to the highest point on the island,is 4000ft higher than Everest,making it the highest mountain on Earth!

Supposedly Mauna Kea is the tallest mountain in the world or something like that.

Anyway, yeah Pele does what she wants in regards to the aina and lava.

That's so awesome! thanks for posting it - you can literally see the ground falling away - totally amazing!

I don't usually say it, I just do it, but since the above was only one line - S&F

Amazing video. Thanks for sharing your find.

Just so everyone is clear, this fissure isn't "near" Kilauea, it's on it. This is a new phase of an ongoing eruption of Kilauea, which has been erupting nonstop since 1983.

Tallest. Not highest.
Mauna Kea is the tallest mountain on Earth.
Mauna Loa is the largest single geologic feature on Earth.

What's the phrase, a picture is worth a thousand words.



The fissures are opening between Pu`u `O`o and Napau Crater.

The earthquake swarm is north near the Fern Forest.

Kilauea Caldera =/= Kilauea Volcano.



As you can see from that image, Kilauea Volcano itself is very large. Kilauea Caldera is the summit caldera of the volcano. However, most of Kilauea's eruptions have come from other craters and fissures on its flanks, including this new one.




This second map shows many of the major features of Kilauea (the entire gray area), including the two craters that this new fissure is between. The new fissure opened between Napau and Pu`u `O`o, which are in the center of this map. Pu`u `O`o has been the most active location for the eruption of Kilauea that began in 1983.

That is awesome! Seeing the earth rejuvenate and destroy itself at the same time. Nature at it's finest! I wish I could witness something like this before my time comes...

in the words of Metallica "careful what you wish you may regret it careful what you wish you just might get it"

I have a feeling you will get to see it although it may be tough to take in the beauty when you running for your life.
