Abstract

The three longest Kilauea eruptions since 1952 produced lava at an overall constant rate of about 9 ?? 106 cubic meters per month (vesicle-free). This is considered to represent the rate of magma supply from a deep source, probably the mantle, because little or no summit deformation indicating high-level storage accompanied any of the three eruptions.
