A steady stream of lava is flowing at the summit of Hawaii’s Kīlauea volcano after the active shield volcano went into a period of intermittent pulsing.

Now, lava is once again filling the crater.

The recent volcanic activity has been confined to the Halemaʻumaʻu crater and is “likely to continue”, the US Geological Survey (USGS) said.

The eruption first began on September 29, 2021 — however in recent weeks the volcanic activity was stopping and starting.

“The crater floor has seen a total rise of about 99 metres,” USGS said.

“The volume of lava effused since the beginning of this eruption was approximately 66 million cubic meters (18 billion gallons) as measured on April 6, 2022.”

Kīlauea is located in Hawaii’s Volcanoes National Park.

While the eruption does not pose a risk to homes, volcanic gasses and “lightweight volcanic glass fragments” are deemed hazards should they fall downwind.

Kīlauea is considered one of the world’s most active volcanoes.

“Since 1952, Kīlauea has erupted dozens of times,” USGS said.

“Kīlauea ranks among the world’s most active volcanoes and may even top the list.”
