Abstract The absence of an observable piezomagnetic effect correlated with rapid deformations of Kilauea Volcano, Hawaii, necessitates critical reappraisal of the conventional model of a dilating magma chamber in an elastic half-space. The introduction of a plastic or readily deformable pseudo-chamber around the magma chamber itself has the required effect of reducing the volcano-magnetic anomaly in model calculations. It also gives an increasing value of the ratio of the maximum horizontal displacement of the surface to the maximum vertical displacement during progressive inflation, and this accords better with available observations than do simple elastic models. In the case of Kilauea it appears that the ovoid pseudo-chamber is substantially larger than the true magma chamber. The volcano is visualised as an essentially cold structure, highly fragmented and penetrated by rainwater, with only localised magma channels.
