The United States Geological Survey has issued a press release highlighting the role of USGS scientists in monitoring the current activity at Kilauea, Hawaii, studying the processes that are at work, and keeping the public informed about the hazards such activity presents. Says USGS Volcano Hazards Program Coordinator John Eichelberger: ‘This historic activity has created new hazards that did not exist before – explosive eruptions as well as toxic sulfur dioxide emissions – in the middle of a national park. Our job is to give emergency responders and the civil defense community the very best information we can provide about what the volcano is doing and what it is likely to do in the future’.

The release includes a link to a USGS CoreCast podcast interview with Dr Eichelberger.
