Extreme earthquake activity in the spring signaled an impending change when Kilauea's Halema'uma'u summit crater collapsed and lava vents began bursting open in new areas on the east side of the Big Island.This volume develops a research plan to study and monitor Mount Rainier, an active Cascade volcano located about 35 km southeast of the Seattle-Tacoma metropolitan area. The book also addresses issues of communication and coordination among geoscientists, social scientists, planners, and responsible authorities, so that research results can be used to support hazard reduction efforts.

A volcano is a rupture in the crust of a planetary-mass object, such as Earth, that allows hot lava, volcanic ash, and gases to escape from a magma chamber below the surface. Earth's volcanoes occur because its crust is broken into 17 major, rigid tectonic plates that float on a hotter, softer layer in its mantle. Therefore, on Earth, volcanoes are generally found where tectonic plates are.
An erupting volcano can blast ash, lava, solid rocks and gases into the air, creating hazards that can kill people, disrupt air travel and destroy property many miles away. If you live near a known volcano, active or dormant, following these tips will help you keep your loved ones safe.
The Global Volcanism Program (GVP) seeks better understanding of all volcanoes through documenting their eruptions--small as well as large--during the past 10,000 years. The range of volcanic behavior is great enough, and volcano lifetimes are long enough, that we must integrate observations of contemporary activity with historical and geological records of the recent past in order to prepare.
The five volcano observatories. of the USGS Volcano Hazards Program continue to monitor the volcanoes of the United States and issue forecasts and regular updates of volcanic activity. Through telework and other adaptations we continue to maintain our monitoring networks and analysis of the incoming data. Our field crews visit field stations as needed to maintain the quality and functionality.

Volcano Observatory Notices for Aviation (VONA) are succinct, plain-English messages aimed at dispatchers, pilots, and air-traffic controllers to inform them of volcanic unrest and eruptive activity that could produce ash-cloud hazards. VONA are issued by U.S. Volcano Observatories when a volcano's Aviation Color Code is changed (up or down) or when significant change in volcanic activity.
The volcano is about 1300m high and 300m wide at its summit, which is currently thought to be about 200m below the surface of the sea. As far as we know, Kick 'em Jenny is the only 'live' (likely to erupt again) submarine volcano in the Eastern Caribbean.
