    Loa upslope of Kilauea summit is unknown. Total ground-water recharge on Kilauea and adjacent areas of Mauna Loa was estimated to be , L/s, or about percent of total : S.E. Ingebritsen, M.A. Scholl.   The name Mauna Loa translates to "Long Mountain" in Hawaiian, an apt name for a volcano that accounts for more than half of Hawaii Island’s land mass. Stuart Rankin/Flickr It is estimated that Mauna Loa emerged above sea level some , years ago and has been erupting for more than , years, though the oldest dated rocks are no more.

      The Hawaii volcano is based on Big Island, the most southern island of the Hawaii state chain in the Pacific Ocean. Kilauea rests in a national park connected to .

About 1, million gallons of water per day moves toward or into ground-water bodies of Kilauea Volcano from the lavas of Mauna Loa Volcano. This movement continues only to the northern boundaries of the east and southwest rift zones of Kilauea, where a substantial quantity of ground water is deflected downslope to other ground-water bodies or to the ocean.

HVO continues to closely monitor Kilauea for any sign of increased activity. The USGS Volcano Alert level for Mauna Loa remains at Normal. The hydrogeology of Kilauea volcano and adjacent areas has been studied since the turn of this century.

However, most studies to date have focused on the relatively shallow, low-salinity parts of the ground-water system, and the deeper hydrothermal system remains poorly by: Kīlauea Volcano Erupts in Explosive and Effusive Cycles.

Kīlauea Volcano is a shield volcano located on the eastern slope of Mauna Loa Volcano on the Island of Hawai‘i. The volcano is considered to be in the shield-building stage of Hawaiian volcanism.

Publications The list below contains only a selected few Kīlauea publications to get interested readers started. For a more comprehensive listing, please see Wright, T.L., and Takahashi, T.J.,Hawai'i bibliographic database, Bulletin of Volcanology, v. 59, p. Updates to the Wright and Takahashi database are compiled and maintained in a bibliography related to the Geology of.

Kīlauea (/ ˌ k iː l aʊ ˈ eɪ ə /, US: / ˌ k ɪ l ə ˈ w eɪ ə /; Hawaiian: [kiːlɐwˈwɛjə]) is an active shield volcano in the Hawaiian Islands that last erupted between and Historically, Kīlauea is the most active of the five volcanoes that together form the island of d along the southeastern shore of the island, the volcano is betweenand Location: Hawaiʻi, United States.

Mauna Loa is not erupting. Its USGS Volcano Alert level remains at ADVISORY. This alert level does not mean that an eruption is imminent or that progression to an eruption is certain. Instead this side of Mauna Loa is characterized by unusually steep slopes with a pair of arcuate cliffs at either end of this zone (Kealakekua Bay at the north end and the Kahuku scarp on the west side of South point at the south end).

Hawaii's Kīlauea volcano has been spewing fire and molten rock non-stop for the last 30 years. It draws attention from all over the world, from scientists to artists to curious tourists. The rift zones of adjacent Mauna Loa volcano bound the regional ground-water flow system that includes Kilauea, and the area bounded by the rift zones of Kilauea and the ocean may comprise a partly isolated subsystem.

People often refer to it as the drive-in volcano. Kilauea is an enigma—you can’t really see the mountain from anywhere on the island, or even recognize it when you are standing on it. It seems more like a wound on the flanks of Mauna Loa. Kilauea and Mauna Loa are among the planet’s most studied and best-instrumented volcanoes and have been actively monitored by scientists at USGS’s Hawaiian Volcano Observatory (HVO) since Visit HVO’s website () for past Volcano Watch articles, Kilauea and Mauna Loa updates, volcano photos, maps, recent earthquake info, and more.
