In Hawai‘i and other oceanic islands with few native land mammals, black rats (Rattus rattus) are among the most damaging invasive vertebrate species to native forest bird populations and habitats, due to their arboreal behavior and generalist foraging habitats and habitat use. This is a selected data set used to assess the impacts of rodenticide treatment on black rat (Rattus rattus) abundance within Hawaii Volcanoes National Park (HAVO). The key objective was to identify rat abundance before and after rodenticide treatment, using paired non-treatment and treatment plots at high elevation (1700-1830m) and low elevation (1220-1340 m). This dataset includes the results of a mark recapture study that took place within...

Between March 2002 and May 2011 periodic water level measurements were made in the well on the summit of KÄ«lauea Volcano using a 2,000-foot calibrated electric tape (Waterline Envirotech Ltd.) with graduations of 0.01 foot. Water level measurements resumed in March 2018. Calibration of the electric tape at the USGS Hydrologic Instrumentation Facility (HIF) in November 2018 revealed a displacement of 0.29 feet over 1,980 feet of the electric tape. We therefore estimate that the accuracy of the water level measurements is 0.3 foot (±9 cm). Water level measurements were referenced to the top of the wellhead, located at 1103 meters above sea level at the time of drilling in 1973.

This data release includes data and metadata on 1) the coverage and composition of plants 2) species specific plant traits 3) sampling locations and 4) environmental data. All sites were within Hawaii Volcanoes National Park on Hawaii Island. Plant cover data were obtained from National Park Service Inventory and Monitoring Program. Plant trait data was collected for these plots in 2014. This study aims to evaluate how traits of native and exotic plant species change along environmental gradients and what this suggests for plant competition and invasion.

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. May 1924 eruption of Kilauea Volcano. Ten-ton block ejected 3,500 feet from the center of Halemaumau Crater at about 1#1:15 a.m., May 18, 1924. Tai Sing Loo, 0. Emerson, and J. Stokes standing around it. Photo by H.T. Stearns, May 22, 1924. Plate 20-C, U.S. Geological Survey Water-Supply Paper 616.

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. 1959 eruption of Kilauea Volcano, fourth phase of activity in Kilauea Iki Crater. A steady stream of lake lava flows westward into the small circular pond over the vent. The lake level is approximately 15 feet below the high mark of a few hours earlier. View is from the north end of Byron Ledge. Photo by the National Park Service, late morning, December 5, 1959. Figure 22, U.S. Geological Survey. Professional paper 537-E.

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Fissure and cones along the northeast rift zone of Mauna Loa Volcano. Puu Ulaula in the upper right corner is a cinder cone about 0.4 mile across. The general slope of the ground surface is toward the left. Photo by U.S. Army Air Corps. Figure 4, U.S. Geological Survey Open-File Report 74-239.

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Portable drilling rig used at Kilauea Volcano in 1965-66. The drill (left) is powered by a connected chain saw motor (in left hand of operator) and is lowered and raised by a hydraulic feed (in the right hand of the operator). Coolant water is pumped (right center) from two fifty-gallon drums. Steam rises from the March 1965 vent area; the main vent is out of the picture toward the right background. The highest level of the lava lake before drainback is recorded by the "bathtub ring" in the background. Circa 1968. Figure 7, U.S. Geological Survey Professional paper 1004.

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Drilling head of the trailer-mounted drill rig used at Kilauea Volcano during 1968-69. The water pump is shown in the right background. The drilling was done using an NX core barrel and bits attached to an AX drill string. Circa 1968. Figure 8-B, U.S. Geological Survey Professional paper 1004.

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. 1969-1971 Mauna Ulu eruption of Kilauea Volcano. Eastern compartment of Mauna Ulu vent area after activity had ceased. The eastern compartment and pedestal cone are viewed from the southwest from a slightly different location (chiefly lower) than in the previous photographs in the sequence. November 14, 1969. Figure 32-H, U.S. Geological Survey Professional paper 1056. Photos sda00058, sda0059, sda00060, sda00061, sda00062, sda00063, sda00064, and sda00065 form a sequence. Time elapsed between photos sda00058 and sda00062 is two minutes; time between photos sda00062 and sda00064, three minutes.

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. February 1969 eruption of Kilauea Volcano. Opening of a fissure across Chain of Craters Road west of Alae Crater: 2:08 p.m., February 22, 1969, lava fountains from the fissure extend into the forest on the right side of the road, setting fires and forming tree molds. The lava flow advances along the highway causing the asphalt to melt and, in places, burn. The asphalt pavement is buried by a thin flow and can commonly be located and mapped by observing the black discoloration of the flow due to tarry substances distilled from the asphalt. Photo by J.C. Forbes. Figure 13-E, U.S. Geological Survey Professional paper 891. Photos sda00013, ska00014, sda00015, sda00016, and sda00017 form...

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. 1969-1971 Mauna Ulu eruption of Kilauea Volcano. Holei Pali, viewed from several hundred meters seaward of its base, showing a lava cascade. Note how lava, probably with a fluidity transitional between pahoehoe and aa, surges down the steep slope, much as water moving in a flume. Sticky aa flow (foreground) slowly advances from the base of the pali (step cliff) This flow entered the ocean several hours later. Visible height of the pali was about 220 meters. June 26, 1969. Photo by D.W. Reeser, National Park Service. Figure 14, U.S. Geological Survey Professional paper 1056.
