In the Park (Grades K-12)

The Jaggar Museum contains numerous displays that explain the monitoring methods employed by the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory.

A short walk along the Earthquake Trail leads to the Waldron Ledge overlook. The overlook provides an excellent view across the caldera to Halemaumau Crater. Note the benchmark on the stone barrier. This location is part of a network to measure deformation of the summit of the volcano. As you drive along the park roads you might notice sets of yellow dots. These dots are used by survey crews that measure ground displacement.
