In the last few months, “Volcano Watch” articles have introduced several research projects funded by the Additional Supplemental Disaster Relief Act of 2019 (H.R. 2157). Each of these projects will help scientists better understand how Kilauea volcano works and how the 2018 lower East Rift Zone eruption and collapse of Kilauea summit happened.
