Eruptions

New flows at Kilauea

Not to feel left out from all the action going on in Alaska, Kilauea in Hawai’i has a new lava flow issuing from the Thankgiving Eve Breakout (TEB) vent area. It sounds like a fairly small flow and none of the flows have reached the ocean. The TEB was the November 21, 2007 event where activity migrated away from the Pu’u O’o area to a new vent to the east.

    How do volcanologists measure the gas compositions of volcanic eruptions?

    I would answer the question, but the USGS have a great page on just such a question!
