2018 Kilauea East Rift Zone Eruption
Kilauea September 2013
Kilauea November 2018
The 2018 Kilauea, Hawaii eruption began in May on Kilauea’s East Rift Zone. Lava fountains up to 100 meters high, lava flows, and volcanic gas continued until August. By the time the eruption ended, over 700 houses had been destroyed, and 35 square kilometers of land had been covered by lava flows. About 3.5 square kilometers (875 acres) of new land has been created in the ocean. The before image was acquired by Landsat 8 on September 5, 2013; the ASTER image was acquired November 14, 2018. The images cover an area of 18 by 25.5 kilometers, and are located at 19.5 degrees north, 154.9 degrees west. An animated geologic map, produced by the US Geologic Survey, shows the time-history of the eruption (Phoenix7777 [CC BY-SA 4.0 (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0) or Public domain], from Wikimedia Commons).
