On Hawaii

In Hawaii

Usually strong trade winds blow from the east along the equator, the seawater is warm and it rains abundantly over the western Pacific, while over the equator. Will there be a new one in Hawaii? Kilauea, the most prolific of all volcanoes in Hawaii, has been in constant evolution since 1983. At the beginning of May, it moved into a new stage when a string of earthquake ruptures opened along a crack on the east side of the vulcano, some of which became vulcanic crevasses from which eruptions of volcanoes were made.

The cracks caused magnetism, which had been submerged in a top pond, to flow off to the bottom whilst the molten rock was flowing down the mountains. It was near a housing area known as Leilani Estates, where a new conical area of volcanoes has evolved since then. On its northwest side Kilauea is supported by the huge earth of the Mauna Loa, but its southeast sides are not supported.

Usually the magnma under the vulcano bursts from the top of the vulcano, and in March there was a dramatic sea of volcanic mud. However, two fissure areas (areas where the vulcano splits) that extend eastward and southwest from the peak may also allow volcanic eruptions on the Kilauea sides.

The US Geological Survey reports that 23 individual new volcano crevices were formed from which eruptions of volcanoes were made. At the end of May the "Riss 8" (the 8th new crack that had been announced) had become predominant - the activities of the others had stopped or decreased. That was the spring of the volcano that flowed into the ocean a few mile away until June 4th, near the Vacationland holiday destination, where it fully occupied what used to be Kapoho Bay.

Until the middle of June, the clotted splashes around the stubbornly proactive part of Fissur 8 had formed a 200 foot high taper. Of course, the issue is whether this new mound and the spring of all this volcanic water is a separate one. When you look at the web, you find a typical "volcano", as it is called " a characteristic of the countryside created in a place where magic erupts".

A simplified term would describe the "Fissur 8" cones as volcanoes, but I think almost every expert vulcanologist would refuse on the ground that it is only a side chimney of Kilauea. That is because it is supplied by the spring water that feeds Kilauea as a whole, and it could have broken out elsewhere in Kilauea.

Fissur 8's new taper is not much larger than many older side tapered ones elsewhere in Kilauea. They would, however, look in futility for a formal punitive interpretation of the concept of "volcano" in order to quantitatively assess the level of connectivity or reciprocal proportions in a way that could solve this problem.

However, it leaves them open to folks who argue that if the 8-cone rift is only part of Kilauea, why don't we just consider Kilauea as part of Mauna Loa? There' s some kind of reasoning, because Kilauea and Mauna Loa get their magic from the same spring in the earth's coat (the hot-spot flag of Hawaii).

This is because the activities on K?lauea have no noticeable influence on the Mauna Loa igneous system. Though I would accept that Rift 8 is not a separate vulcano, it certainly deserves to be called a mnemonic. This is the right of the grassroots communities, including the many individuals who have been displaced by the new flock.

This could be known as Pu'u Leilani (Hawaiian for "Leilani Hill", according to its location), or perhaps something more poetical.
