Usual day of a volcano which is thrown up 30 years

Published on 13, Aug 2016

One of the most active volcanoes of the world, the Hawaiian Kilauea, continues to be thrown up. Colorful floods of a lava were removed on video from air. The operator Mick Kalber during three tens years removes volcanic activity on Hawaii.

At the end of the last week making flight of a volcano of Kilauea, he saw huge lava “waves” around Puu-oo’s cone. According to him, for all years of work he haven’t seen so much lava on the earth away from a volcano muzzle.

The last eruption of Kilauea began on January 3, 1983 and proceeds to the present. He entered a phase of intensive activity on March 6, 2011. Kilauea is considered a habitat of Pele – the Hawaiian goddess of volcanoes. Her name is given to some lava educations: “Pele’s tears” call small fragments of a lava which are cooled on air and take the form of a drop, and “Pele’s hair” – result of cooling of splashes of a lava on a wind.

At top of a volcano the roundish caldera of 3 by 4 kilometers in size lies. In it the crater of Halemaumau which became active since 2008 again is located. Along the Southeast rift zone there is Puu-oo who is continuously throwing up since 1983. According to volcanists, the wave floods of a lava shown on video happen in rift zones of Kilauea of times in some months; this normal phenomenon for an active volcano.
