      Phillips et al. () estimated relative vertical deformation rates on the south flank of Kilauea volcano with an uncertainty ranging from to cm/year (Table 6).   This project provides a detailed paleoseismic analysis of the Hilina Fault System on the south flank of Kilauea Volcano, Hawaii, that improves geologic hazard assessment in the region. Geologic hazards of the south flank region include large seismic events, volcanic activity, and tsunami waves resulting from seismic or volcanic ~burgmann/RESEARCH/

      A large, intermittently active, submarine landslide known as the Hilina slump has been interpreted along the south flank of Kilauea volcano. Seaward-dipping faults on land mark its headwall, and an offshore bench may define its uplifted toe. Geodetic data show that the entire south flank is also moving seaward, by a process referred to as volcanic spreading; this provides an alternative   Since February Alae Crater, a m-deep pit crater on the east rift of Kilauea Volcano, has been completely filled with about 18 million m3 of lava. The filling was episodic and complex. It involved 13 major periods of addition of lava to the crater, including spectacular lava falls as high as m, and three major periods of draining of lava from the ://

Swanson, Wendell A. Duffield, and Richard S. Fiske Growing awareness of the interaction between magmatic activity and edifice deformation has significantly altered our perception of how volcanoes work (e.g. McGuire, and references therein). It has long been appreciated that the South Flank of Kilauea volcano is slipping progressively seawards and that this motion is a significant factor in understanding the behaviour of the volcanic Full text of "Displacement of the South Flank of Kilauea Volcano: The Result of Forceful Intrusion of Magma Into the Rift Zones" See other Models developed to explain the deformation of Kilauea volcano largely rely on seismic and geodetic data that cover only a short period of activity.

Location map of south flank of Kilauea Volcano, ~burgmann/RESEARCH/HILINA/THESIS/PROSPECT/ Many authors have suggested that the persistent seaward motion of Kilauea's south flank results from slip along a basal decollement 9,10,11,12,13,14 at a depth of 7–8 km ().The inferred depth of   Numerous websites have stories speculating that the south flank of Kilauea volcano might be unstable as a result of recent earthquake and volcanic activity.

HAWAIʻI ISLAND - Scientists say the south flank of Kīlauea continues to creep seaward at elevated rates following the Magnitude earthquake near Kalapana on May 4, Kilauea summit caldera The most recent update from HVO/USGS on the continuing eruption of Kilauea volcano (Hawaii) stated that ash emission from the Overlook crater within Halema`uma`u has decreased.

A three-dimensional model has been used to estimate the location and dimensions of the eruptive fissure for the 24–29 September eruption along the southwest rift zone of Kilauea volcano, Hawaii.
