When did Kilauea eruption?
it erupts when the magma is full the last seen was Saturday afternoon on March 10, 2011.
When Kilauea erupts, it has produced very fluid magma flows. The volcano has been producing these types of basalt flows during its current eruption since 1983. Kilauea historically however has had several types of eruptions in its geologic past. In 1790 Kilauea had a very explosive eruption similar in style to the 1980 eruption of Mt. St. Helens.
The 1790 eruption of Kilauea is considered the most violent in the recent record of eruption of Kilauea. The specific changes of the landscape are not specifically known as there are no artist interpretations or photographs from before the eruption. All that is known about the eruption comes from dating of rocks to the eruption as well as legends from the native Hawaiian people. It is speculated that the eruption could have made the summit…

There are several different types of volcanic eruptions, such as Strombolian, Vulcanian, Vesuvian, Pelean, and Hawaiian. The eruption of Kilauea in Hawaii in 1959 was an "Hawaiian eruption", also known as a fissure eruption. Hawaiian eruptions eject volcanic matter (ash, lava, etc) through a linear fissure or fracture, or through a central vent. Kilauea erupted through a central vent, and this style of eruption is usually characterised by fiery lava fountains that extend hundreds of…
There are 95 Confirmed and dated eruptions during Holocene times for Kilauea. The most recent being the current eruption that began in January of 1983, all the way back to the first dated eruption layer at approximately 4650 BCE. The eruption list which is available through the Smithsonian Institute of Global Volcanism. The eruption list is compiled of historical accounts as well as tephrachronology and radiocarbon dating.
