Seismicity Associated with the Eruption of Kilauea Volcano
The downlift migration of shawllow earthquakes swarms that occured episodically for many months before the eart-rift eruption of january, 1983 reflected the proocess of magma movement from the summit to the east rift storage complex as a preliminary stage to the eruption. Migration of earthquakes at a rate of 0.6 to 0.7 km per hour during the final intrusion bifore the eruption provided a seismic measure for the rate of downrift propagtion of magmatic pressure. The spatial dostribution of summit, rift and south flank earthquakes delineated the magma tranport system.
