ABSTRACT

Explosive Eruptions at Kilauea Volcano, Hawaii?   [open pdf - 705KB]

"Although known for quiet eruptions of lava that rarely endanger lives, Kilauea Volcano on the Island of Hawai'i has also produced devastating and deadly explosive eruptions in the past. Because such eruptions are sure to occur again, U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) scientists are studying deposits from Kilauea's past explosive eruptions to better understand what caused them and to identify communities at risk from such eruptions in the future."
