Hawaiian hot spot fuels volcano debate

The plumbing of Hawaii's volcanoes might not be as straightforward as scientists thought. Rather than being fuelled by a vertical plume of magma rising from deep within the Earth, a new study suggests that volcanic activity in the region is fed by a massive hot pool of rock lurking in Earth's mantle some 1,000 kilometres to the west of the islands.

NASA Airborne Radar Set to Image Hawaiian Volcanoes
 
The Kilauea volcano that recently erupted on the Big Island of Hawaii will be the target for a NASA study to help scientists better understand processes occurring under Earth's surface.
A NASA Gulfstream-III aircraft equipped with a synthetic aperture radar developed by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., is scheduled to depart Sunday, April 3, from the Dryden Aircraft Operations Facility in Palmdale, Calif., to the Big Island for a nine-day mission.

Diamond Head Crater is synonymous with Hawaii. Television shows and movies almost always feature a view of Diamond Head in the background. It looks powerful and imposing, but looks alone don't tell the tale.
Diamond Head Crater was originally called "Le ahi" (brow of the ahi). Hi'iaka, sister of the volcano goddess Pele named the crater due to its resemblance to the yellowfin tuna, called "ahi" in Hawaiian. King Kamehameha the Great offered human sacrifices to the war god Ku at the top of the crater.

Pu'u 'O'o Crater Floor Collapses As New Fissure Opens Nearby

A series of fiery and seismic activities on the Big Island have geologists raising some alerts.
Scientists at the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory report a fountain of fire at Kilauea near Napau Crater that began Saturday afternoon. That event was nearly simultaneous to a floor collapse at the Pu'u 'O'o Crater that happened just after 2pm Saturday.
