Remote Image Navigator

Zoom in on Pu'u O'o


One of the first casualties of the current series of eruptions that started at the Pu'u O'o vent on the East Rift Zone was a settlement called the Royal Gardens subdivision. Here we see a view taken in 1990 that shows how the series of roads (the white lines) became blocked and cut-off by the lava flows (black) that formed in 1983 - 1985.

In 1984, the East Rift Zone upslope from Pu'u O'o (the cone seen on the horizon) was very active, with numerous steam vents (called "fumaroles") marking the position of the underground magma. In recent years this type of activity has decreased.
