Volcano-Steam Vent-Sulphur Bank-Lava Tube-Devastation Trail On Big Island, Hawaii-UHD 4K

Volcano-Steam Vent-Sulphur Bank-Lava Tube-Devastation Trail On Big Island, Hawaii-UHD 4K

You will see the Hawaii Volcano National Park, and find the Jagger museum, see steam vents caused by lava under the crust of the earth. The Thurston lava tube was fascinating, we also visited the hidden underground tunnel and Devastation Trail.

At Sulphur Banks (Ha’akulamanu), volcanic gases seep out of the ground along with groundwater steam. These gases are rich in carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide and hydrogen sulfide — the gas that smells like rotten eggs. Some sulfur gases deposit pure crystals at Sulphur Banks. Other sulfur gases form sulfuric acid which breaks down the lava to clay. This clay is stained red and brown with iron oxide.

The Jagger Museum is named after Thomas A. Jagger, and it contains many exhibits and artifacts on volcanology. The Thurston lava tube is a tube through the earth that was carved out by a flow of lava many centuries ago, and you must go through a rainforest jungle in order to reach this spectacular natural wonder.

Devastation Trail is a trail that leads through an area that was devastated by volcanic activity when Kīlauea Iki erupted in 1959. Seeing the cinders made us realize just how devastating the volcanic eruption was.

The Big Island is the largest and the southeastern-most of the Hawaiian islands, a chain of volcanic islands in the North Pacific Ocean. With an area of 4,028 square miles (10,430 km2), it is larger than all of the other islands in the archipelago combined and is the largest island in the United States.
