Center for the Study of Active Volcanoes

Incredible giant waves in Hawaii, at Keaukaha, Hilo, in November 1996. Harada Productions filmed high surf pouring through the parking lot at King's Landing, covering the breakwall at Radio Bay, and overwhelming Richardson's. Waves dwarf Onekahakaha Beach Park. A bulldozer removes boulders near a rental home that washed off its foundation and landed 60 feet away. A storm low to the NE of the state produced this swell; it impacted the N & NE shores of all the islands, with occasional 20-foot waves.

CSAV is based at the University of Hawaii at Hilo. Since 1990, we have been providing educational and training programs about volcanoes and earthquakes. In the mid-1990's, we branched off and began educational programs about hurricanes, tsunamis, and other natural hazards as well.

Three UH-Hilo web sites (CSAV, Natural Hazards Hawaii, and Geology) have featured low-res photos and videos for years. We are currently rebuilding the videos in high-res, and as we do, they will appear on this channel. In addition, watch for periodic new videos of eruption conditions, tsunamis, and whatever else Mother Nature sends our way.

Current equipment: Sony DCR VX2100 Handycam & Sachtler tripod. Computer: Mac G5; editing with Final Cut Pro.
