Continued spattering in the summit lava lake

Continued spattering in the summit lava lake...

Detailed Description

Spattering is common in the summit lava lake in Halema‘uma‘u Crater. This afternoon, spattering was active at a site along the east lake margin. Spatter deposits have built a small ledge extending out from the crater walls (lower right of photo), onto which fluid spatter often falls. For scale, the lake surface is 28 meters (92 feet) below the floor of Halema‘uma‘u Crater (visible at the top of the photo).
