プウオオ復活

Kilauea Information Release issued Jul 2, 2007 17:10 HST Volcanic-Alert Level WATCH - Aviation Color Code ORANGE
Report prepared by the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory (HVO):

Lava returns to Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō Crater

The presence of new lava in the bottom of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō crater was confirmed this afternoon by Hawaiian Volcano Observatory (HVO) scientists. When viewed at about 2 p.m. H.s.t., lava was covering fresh flows that may have erupted in the crater between 8 and 9 a.m. this morning, when first reported by local helicopter tour operators.

(略)

Lava was last seen at the Poupou ocean entry on June 20, after the intrusion that started on June 17, 2007, led to a small eruption by the morning of June 19. After a similar event in late January, 1997, lava returned to Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō 23 days later and again flowed towards the ocean a few weeks after that.


第一発見者は、ツアーヘリコプターのパイロットだった。エピソード57と呼ぶのだろう。エピソード55を復活させることはしないらしい。

1997年にあった同様の休止は23日続いたというが、今回は12日だった。
