Kīlauea - Summit Cams

Kīlauea is the youngest and most active volcano on the island of Hawaiʻi, with a consistently active summit caldera that frequently hosts lava-lake style eruptions. According to Native Hawaiian tradition, Halemaʻumaʻu crater is the home of the volcanic deity Pele. Read more about Kīlauea

Kīlauea- East Rift Zone Cams

Radiating out from the summit, Kīlauea has two rift zones stretching to the east and southwest. The east rift is historically the more active of the two, most recently erupting from January 1983 to August 2018.

Mauna Loa Cams

The largest volcano on earth, Mauna Loa is comprised of a main summit caldera called Moku‘āweoweo and three rift zones to the northeast, northwest, and southwest. We are currently in the volcano's longest quiet period since written records have been kept, as it has not erupted since 1984. Read more about Mauna Loa.

Mokuʻāweoweo Caldera Thermal from the Northwest Rim [MTcam]

This image is from a temporary thermal camera located on the north rim of the Mauna Loa summit caldera.  The temperature scale is in degrees Celsius up to a maximum of 500 degrees (932 degrees Fahrenheit) for this camera model, and scales automatically based on the maximum and minimum temperatures on the caldera floor and not the whole frame, which sometimes results in the rim (bottom of image) looking saturated (white).

Mokuʻāweoweo Caldera from South Rim [MOcam]

This image is from a research camera positioned on the south rim of Mokuʻāweoweo, Mauna Loa's summit caldera, in Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park.  The camera looks north-northwest, focusing on the southern part of the caldera. The 1940 cone is just right of center; the 1949 cone is on the caldera rim at left. The high point of Mauna Loa's summit is in the background.
