Detailed Description

Debris from a partial collapse of this island is visible on the stagnant lake surface (lower right) which exposed the red oxidized interior. On Friday, February 5, several similar collapse features were visible at a few of the islands on the stagnant east side of the lava lake. USGS photo taken by K. Lynn.
