Kīlauea lower East Rift Zone 2019: quiet but insightful

Kīlauea lower East Rift Zone 2019: quiet but insightful. 

In the year since Kīlauea Volcano’s notable 2018 eruption ended, the lower East Rift Zone has been relatively quiet. But USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory (HVO) scientists continue to gain insight into the eruption through ongoing research and monitoring. For answers to some of the many questions asked by island residents—Why did the fissures erupt along a linear pattern? How long will it take for the lava to solidify? Why is vegetation still dying in the area?

—join USGS HVO geologist Carolyn Parcheta as she explores these and other queries and shares recent observations and findings by HVO scientists. Part of Hawai‘i Volcanoes’ ongoing After Dark in the Park series. Free (park entrance fees apply). 
When: Tuesday, January 21 at 7 p.m.
