Can I get a lava-flow hazard zone map for Hawai'i Island?

The first maps showing volcanic hazard zones on Hawai‘i Island were prepared in 1974 by U.S. Geological Survey geologists and were published in USGS Open-File Report 74-239.  The lava-flow hazards map was reformatted in the 1980s, based on new and more complete geologic mapping and lava flow age-dating by USGS scientists. 


In 1992, the Lava-Flow Hazard Map was slightly revised and published as USGS Miscellaneous Field Studies Map 2193
