Campaign Global Positioning System (GPS) measurements from 1990 to 1996 are used to calculate surface displacement rates on Kilauea Volcano, Hawaii. The GPS data show that the south flank of the volcano, which has generated several large earthquakes in the past 3 decades, is displacing at up to ;8 cm/yr to the south-southeast. The summit and rift zones are subsiding, with maximum subsidence rates of ;8 cm/yr observed a few kilometers south of the summit caldera. Elastic dislocation modeling of… Expand
The 12 September 1999 Upper East Rift Zone dike intrusion at Kilauea Volcano, Hawaii
[1] Deformation associated with an earthquake swarm on 12 September 1999 in the Upper East Rift Zone of Kilauea Volcano was recorded by continuous GPS receivers and by borehole tiltmeters. AnalysesExpand
Vertical deformation measurements on the submerged south flank of Kīlauea volcano, Hawai'i reveal seafloor motion associated with volcanic collapse
[1] A four-year seafloor geodetic study was conducted to measure vertical deformation of the submerged south flank of Kīlauea volcano on the active Hilina slump. The Hilina slump is a site ofExpand
Ground deformation at Mt. Etna: a joint interpretation of GPS and InSAR data from 1993 to 2000
Combined Global Positioning System (GPS) measurements and Interferometry SAR (InSAR) have been applied on Mt. Etna to study the ground deformation affecting the volcano both over the long (1993-2000)Expand
An increment of volcano collapse: Kinematics of the 1975 Kalapana, Hawaii, earthquake
Abstract Earthquakes on Kilauea Volcano can be even more hazardous than volcanic eruptions. The most recent large earthquake was the 1975 Kalapana quake, which generated a locally damaging tsunami,Expand
A retrospective look at the February 1993 east rift zone intrusion at Kīlauea volcano, Hawaii
Abstract The February 1993 dike intrusion in the East Rift Zone (ERZ) of Kīlauea Volcano, Hawai'i, was recognized from tilt and seismic data, but ground-based geodetic data were too sparse toExpand
Structural variability along the submarine south flank of Kilauea volcano, Hawai'i, from a multichannel seismic reflection survey
Recent analysis of marine multichannel seismic reflection data collected across the south flank of Kilauea volcano, Hawaii has confirmed that the distal flank records significant accretion andExpand
Crustal deformation of the Yellowstone–Snake River Plain volcano-tectonic system: Campaign and continuous GPS observations, 1987–2004
[1] The Yellowstone–Snake River Plain tectonomagmatic province resulted from Late Tertiary volcanism in western North America, producing three large, caldera-forming eruptions at the YellowstoneExpand
The 2012 Kilauea Volcano, Hawai’i, Slow-Slip Event Captured by cGPS and Satellite Radar Interferometry
Slow-slip events (SSEs) have been detected to occur along the southern flank of Kilauea volcano (Hawaii, USA). SSEs have been recorded using continuous Global Positioning System (GPS) and tiltmetersExpand
Spatiotemporal evolution of dike opening and décollement slip at Kīlauea Volcano, Hawai'i
[1] Rapid changes in ground tilt and GPS positions on Kīlauea Volcano, Hawai'i, are interpreted as resulting from a shallow, two-segment dike intrusion into the east rift zone that began at 1217 UTCExpand
High-resolution locations of triggered earthquakes and tomographic imaging of Kilauea Volcano's south flank
[1] The spatiotemporal patterns of seismicity beneath Kilauea's south flank give insight to the structure and geometry of the decollement on which large, tsunamigenic earthquakes have occurred, andExpand


Deformation of Kilauea volcano during 1982 and 1983: A transition period
A major transition in the style of deformation of Kilauea volcano occurred during the period January 1982 through November 1983. Prior to 1983, the deformation was dominated by magma intrusions,Expand
Displacement of the south flank of Kilauea Volcano; the result of forceful intrusion of magma into the rift zones
Seismic evidence has long indicated that the south flank of Kilauea Volcano is mobile. Examination of triangulation, trilateration, and leveling data obtained throughout the 20th century shows thatExpand
Deep Magma Body Beneath the Summit and Rift Zones of Kilauea Volcano, Hawaii
Kilauea's magmatic system is probably deeper and more extensive than previously thought; the summit and both rift zones may be underlain by a thick, near vertical dike-like magma system at a depth of 3 to 9 kilometers. Expand
The three-dimensional structure of Kilauea Volcano, Hawaii, from travel time tomography
A linear, travel time tomography study of the most active shield volcano of the world, Kilauea Volcano, Hawaii, was undertaken to determine the lateral heterogeneities produced by its intricateExpand
A fault model for the 1989 Kilauea South Flank Earthquake from leveling and seismic data
The geometry of the fault that ruptured during the M6.1 south flank earthquake on Kilauea volcano in 1989 is determined from leveling data. The elastic dislocation, in a homogeneous elasticExpand
Crustal structure of the southeast flank of Kilauea Volcano, Hawaii, from seismic refraction measurements

Volcanic spreading at Kilauea, 1976–1996
The rift system traversing about 80 km of the subaerial surface of Kilauea volcano has extended continuously since the M 7.2 flank earthquake of November 1975. Widening across the summit has amountedExpand
Rapid Deformation of the South Flank of Kilauea Volcano, Hawaii
Global Positioning System measurements conducted between 1990 and 1993 reveal seaward displacements of Kilauea's central south flank at rates of up to about 10 centimeters per year, while the northern side of the volcano and the distal ends of the south flank did not displace significantly. Expand
