Hawai`i Volcanoes National Park
Current Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) and Particulate (PM2.5) Conditions
Graphic showing the approximate location and shape of the Kilauea Summit and Pu'u 'O'o sulfur dioxide gas plumes as based on wind direction measurements.
The map above indicates the approximate direction and extent of the volcanic gas plumes (yellow wedges) from Halema'uma'u and Pu'u O'o. Within the plumes are unhealthy concentrations of sulfur dioxide (SO2) and small particles (PM2.5). Color-coded health advisories (color circles or label boxes) are issued when the plumes affect surface areas.
Warning symbol Sulfur dioxide gas plumes from volcanic vents may impact common visitor areas around the Kilauea caldera. Unhealthy to hazardous conditions may exist. Plan outdoor activities for safer areas.
