K¯ılauea volcano is one of the most extensively studied and closely monitored volcanoes on Earth and as such, is a type locality for basaltic volcanism. Eruptions are typically associated with large-volume, eﬀusive outpourings of pahoehoe lava ﬂows or occasional spectacular lava fountains. However, the eruptive history of the volcano is surprisingly varied and dramatic changes in behaviour have occurred over intervals of days to centuries, from periods of quiescent lava lake activity, to transient subplinian explosions and phreatomagmatic episodes.
