I think Putterman is monitoring this as well.
I have been doing my own crude measurements and have noticed a difference over the last few days.

They look like everything is under control, if you can control.
The Halema`uma`u Trail crossing Kilauea Caldera is CLOSED.
Crater Rim Drive and Crater Rim Trail are CLOSED from the Jaggar Museum south around the caldera to the Chain of Craters Road junction.

Problem is that this thing is up and down like a yo-yo. Last time the Halema'uma'u vent was up and all of a sudden it dropped, and then we had the series of fissure eruptions further down near Puʻu ʻŌʻō I think it was.

At present the level looks much lower than it was web cam

I will dig up the snaps I took to compare.

Found one of them. This was just as the lava level was dropping last time. That level is quite a bit higher than what I am currently seeing. The image was on the 06 March 2011.

By the way - from the article


It represents a natural phenomena scientists call a pyroclastic flow, with lava surging into a lake where temperatures can rise as high as 700C.


It is a lava lake it is NOT pyroclastic flow not no way not no how!! I would also think that it is unlikely to be as low a temperature as 700C - more like 1000 or 1200.

See this for comparison

I have this set up to snap every five minutes so I have started it rolling again. It should be very easy to see if the level is rising of falling within and hour or so.

By the way on the 6th March I did an animated GIF. It is huge (24 MB download that expands to 90MB) but here it is if you want to see it. It is a 7zip file. You can get 7zip here. It is free and better than both WinRar and WinZIp in many ways.

We can fix it if it gets too high. We have the technology.

Mm. Looks as if the camera has stopped working.

Looks as if the camera is back on again.

I have restarted my timer to take 5 minute snaps.

That is brilliant. Looks like it did come up a little then back down again. I have seen it much higher and completly down to the bottom. One of those just to keep watching.
Latest report is KILAUEA VOLCANO (CAVW #1302-01-)
19°25'16" N 155°17'13" W, Summit Elevation 4091 ft (1247 m)
Current Volcano Alert Level: WATCH
Current Aviation Color Code: ORANGE

Activity Summary for past 24 hours: DI inflation started at the summit yesterday afternoon. The summit lava lake level abruptly rose a few hours later. In the east rift zone, sources within Pu`u `O`o crater fed a lava lake perched in the middle of the crater floor whose level remained below the rim. Seismicity levels remained generally low. Gas emissions increased from east rift zone vents while remaining low from summit vents.
