Matinée presentation :

Kīlauea’s largest eruption in more than two centuries rocked the volcano’s summit and forever changed Hawai‘i Island’s populated lower Puna district during the summer of 2018.  Field geologist Rick Hazlett—adjunct faculty at UH-Hilo and a USGS volunteer who closely monitored the eruption for the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory—shares personal reflections about the unfolding crisis, a look at how history might help us place it in context, and his thoughts about what it means looking forward to the future of Kīlauea. 

This fascinating program will be presented twice:  Monday evening, January 28, and the following afternoon, January 29.
