Jaggar Museum, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park: 3 reviews and 3 photos
Also a tiltmeter is on display in the museum providing real-time data about the volcanoes. Rapid increase in tilt can indicate that magma is accumulating at shallow levels within the volcano and is often a precursor to an eruption. Rapid decreases in tilt can indicate that magma is draining at shallow leaves within the volcano and moving into a rift zone. Movement of magma into a rift zone is often a precursor to a flank eruption.
The Jaggar Museum has an overlook which offers a splendid view into the Kilauea Caldera and the Halema'uma'u Crater. The museum also has very large windows which afford a sheltered view when the weather is inclement.
