Map of "June 27 breakout" flow near Puʻu ʻŌʻō

Map showing the “June 27 breakout” flow at Puʻu ʻŌʻō in Kīlauea’s East Rift Zone. The area of the new flow as mapped on June 30 is shown in pink, while widening of the flow as July 18 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 yellow; episodes 50–55 flows (1992–2007) are tan; episodes 58–60 flows (2007–2011) are pale orange; the 2011–2013 episode 61 flows are very light tan; and the 2013–2014 Kahaualeʻa flows are reddish orange. (see large map)

June 30, 2014 — Kīlauea


Small-scale map of Kīlauea’s ERZ flow field

Map showing the June 27, 2014, breakout and the Kahaualeʻa 2 flow in relation to the eastern part of the Island of Hawaiʻi as of June 30, 2014. The Kahaualeʻa 2 flow (pale orange) is no longer active — it was beheaded when the lava level at Puʻu ʻŌʻō dropped with the onset of the June 27 breakout. The area of the new flow as mapped on June 27 is shown in pink, while widening of the flow as June 30 is shown in red. All older lava flows (1983–2013) are shown in gray. (see large map)

June 30, 2014 — Kīlauea


Map of June 27 breakout in Kīlauea’s ERZ

Map showing the June 27, 2014, breakout at Puʻu ʻŌʻō in Kīlauea’s East Rift Zone. The area of the new flow as mapped on June 27 is shown in pink, while widening of the flow as June 30 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 yellow; episodes 50–55 flows (1992–2007) are tan; episodes 58–60 flows (2007–2011) are pale orange, and 2011–2013 episode 61 flows are very light tan. The 2013–2014 Kahaualeʻa 2 flow, which is now dead, is reddish orange. (see large map)

June 27, 2014 — Kīlauea


Small-scale map of Kīlauea’s ERZ flow field

Map showing the Kahaualeʻa 2 flow (pink) in relation to the eastern part of the Island of Hawaiʻi as of June 17, 2014. The most distant active Kahaualeʻa 2 lava flows were 7.1 km (4.4 miles) straight-line distance northeast of Puʻu ʻŌʻō. A new breakout (shown in red) started today on the northeast flank of Puʻu ʻŌʻō and is sending new lava flows toward the northeast. Time will tell if these new flows rob the supply of lava to the Kahaualeʻa 2 flow, causing it to stall. 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 Kahaualeʻa 2 lava tube is shown with a yellow line (dashed where its position is poorly known). (see large map)

June 17, 2014 — Kīlauea


Small-scale map of Kīlauea’s ERZ flow field

Map showing the Kahaualeʻa 2 flow (pink) in relation to the eastern part of the Island of Hawaiʻi as of June 17, 2014. Red stars mark the fronts of the active breakouts—the most distant was 7.0 km (4.3 miles) straight-line distance northeast of Puʻu ʻŌʻō. 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)

June 6, 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 Island of Hawaiʻi as of June 6, 2014. Red stars mark the fronts of the active breakouts—the most distant was 6.5 km (4.0 miles) straight-line distance northeast of Puʻu ʻŌʻō. 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)
