Kilauea: Earth's Most Active Volcano
Co-sponsored by OLLI@UGA & Reflecting, Sharing, Learning, this program is free and open to the public and will be held at the Athens Clarke County Library.
Kilauea has been continuously active since 1983, erupting lava sourced from a permanently sited, deep-mantle magma hot spot. The recent 2018 volcanic activity has been spewing clouds of ash and smoke over the Puna area. This program will describe the origin of the Hawaiian-Emperor seamount chain, and take a look at the history of volcanic activity in the Hawaiian Archipelago. Eruptive styles and lava flow characters will be illustrated with video and a representative suite of Kilauea volcanic rocks on display for examination.
