Kilauea (United States) - Report for 8 August-14 August 2018

HVO reported that during 8-14 August activity at Kilauea was characterized by a slowly-circulating lava pond deep within the Fissure 8 vent (though the pond was crusted over by 14 August) and a billowing gas plume, and a few scattered ocean entries.
The summit area was quiet except for occasional rockfalls into the crater.
Fresh black sand from fragmented lava was transported SW by the ocean current, and accumulated in the Pohoiki harbor, creating a sandbar.
The westernmost ocean entry was about 1 km NE of the harbor.
Earthquake and deformation data indicated no magma movement or pressurization in the system.
