The overwhelming choice of visitors to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Our Eruption Update video combines a running history of the current eruption of Kilauea Volcano (29 years worth!) with narration told from a personal point of view. We want you to really feel what it’s like to work on an active volcano. Follow us as we work and scientists from the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory as they monitor the eruption. Here you get the real sights and sounds of the volcano… all that’s missing is the heat and the smell (sulfur, gotta love it).
There is nothing comparable to experiencing an eruption up close – and we’ve never seen another video or TV show that can really give you that feeling. We add new footage several times a year, making this one hour the most up-to-date and exciting video on Kilauea’s eruption available. Narrated by volcanologist Ken Hon and photographer John Kjargaard.
Blu-ray extra: Songs of the Molten Earth – gorgeous high-definition lava set to music, a complete lava-fest! (25 min)
DVD extras: Reflections on Kilauea: 20 years Working on an Active Volcano. In honor of the 20th anniversary of the eruption, we produced a program of interviews with some of the people who have worked longest on the volcano. Now you can hear the scientists, park rangers, pilots and photographers tell some of their own stories. (20 min) Trials and Tribulations of a Volcanologist This short humorous piece illustrates some of the hazards of doing research on an active volcano. (3 min)
