April 18, 2014 — Kīlauea


Small-scale map of Kīlauea’s ERZ flow field

Map showing the Kahaualeʻa 2 flow in relation to the eastern part of the Big Island as of April 18, 2014. The most distant active front of the Kahaualeʻa 2 flow had retreated slightly, probably in response to a DI event which occurred at Kīlauea’s summit over past week, and was 7.5 km (4.7 miles) northeast of Puʻu ʻŌʻō. Most flows were within the interior part of the flow, but a few fingers were advancing very slowly into thick forest. The area of the Kahaualeʻa 2 flow as of April 7 is shown in pink, while widening of the flow since then is shown in red. Older lava flows are distinguished by color: episodes 1–48b flows (1983–1986) are shown in gray; episodes 48c–49 flows (1986–1992) are pale yellow; episodes 50–55 flows (1992–2007) are tan; episodes 58–60 flows (2007–2011) are pale orange, and episode 61 flows (2011–2013) are reddish orange. The active lava tube is shown with a yellow line (dashed where its position is poorly known). (see large map)
