USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory scientists monitor the Halema‘uma‘u lava lake using state-of-the-art instruments acquired through the Additional Supplemental Appropriations for Disaster Relief Act of 2019. Supplemental funds are supporting HVO’s recovery and rebuilding in the wake of Kilauea’s 2018 lower East Rift Zone eruption and summit collapse. Three main HVO activities are funded: bolstering volcano monitoring and eruption response capabilities, conducting scientific investigations, and building new facilities.
Communities on the Island of Hawaii continue to recover from Kilauea’s 2018 lower East Rift Zone eruption and summit collapse as does the USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory.
