Friends of Waikiki Aquarium Lecture Series - 2018 Eruption of Kilauea Volcano

November 14, 6:00pm - 7:00pm
Tenney Theatre -The Cathedral of St. Andrew

Join Dr. Scott Rowland, University of Hawaii (Mānoa) Geology Professor, on Wednesday, November 14 as he describes how Kīlauea, an active shield volcano on the Big Island of Hawai'i, dominated the geologic news for Spring/Summer 2018. He will share the timeline and impact of the eruption and flow, as well as how the online community followed along with fascination thanks to webcams and detailed timely reports, images, and data from the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory and others on social media.

Keep in mind that there were essentially two simultaneous eruptions: 1) earthquakes, ground fractures, and eruptions in the lower East Rift Zone; and 2) earthquakes, subsidence, and draining of the magma chamber up at the summit.

Come and learn how these eruptions did (and will) affect us. A follow-up Lecture will build on Dr. Rowland's lecture, addressing how these eruptions impacted Pacific marine life in the affected area.
