Seismic monitoring at the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory (HVO) has repeatedly demonstrated the ability to detect and track patterns of earthquake activity that foreshadow eruptions at both Kilauea and Mauna Loa Volcanoes. Elevated levels of seismicity recently noted beneath Mauna Loa, along with suggestive patterns of measured ground surface deformations, suggest that the volcano is at an elevated level of unrest. HVO geophysicist Paul Okubo will discuss the current seismic state of Mauna Loa, as well as seismological observations that HVO has keyed on in the past to issue eruption forecasts.
