Mauna Kea Monthly Update issued Feb 11, 2015 10:41 Volcano Alert Level NORMAL - Aviation Color Code GREEN

No unusual deformation or seismicity was detected during the month of January 2015.

Ten deep (> 13 km) and 7 shallower earthquakes were detected beneath the volcano. Earthquakes to the north of the summit of Mauna Kea near Honoka`a are more likely associated with the load of the Island of Hawaii on the underlying crust and mantle, then to volcanic processes at Mauna Kea.

The GPS station on Mauna Kea, which is operated by the Jet Propulsion Lab (JPL), has not been operational since mid-October 2014.
