Source of a breakout and a look down in Pu`u `Ō `ō



Left. One of several new breakouts on the rootless shield complex. The breakouts were first reported on Friday evening, June 27. The billowing plume in the background is from the Waikupanaha ocean entry. Right. Close up of the source of a breakout between the TEB vent and rootless shield 1. A rampart is forming over the spattering vent.



Left. Looking down into Pu`u `Ō `ō crater at the May 23 gas vent. The vent, which is on the east side of the crater, has not substantially changed since it was first observed. Right. A minor bench collapse claimed 3.3 acres of the Waikupanaha delta. Unusual seismic signals in the area were recorded this morning between 1 and 2 a.m., but the timing of the collapse has not yet been confirmed. The ocean entry continues to host persistent littoral explosions and a voluminous plume.
