Figure 3. Kilauea summit SO2 emission rates in metric tons per day from June 1979 through 1997. Summit emissions increased with the onset of the 1983 Pu`u `O`o eruption. Another increase is seen in early 1987, and summit emissions have declined from an average of 410 mt/d for February 1987 to 140 mt/d for February 1997.
