This fish-eye view of the lava delta filling the former Kapoho Bay ...

Detailed Description

This fish-eye view of the lava delta filling the former Kapoho Bay shows that while the delta margin nearest the ocean has cooled somewhat, the lava flow front is still very hot and producing laze (lava haze). Laze is a local hazard, but is composed of acidic gases and glass fragments and should be avoided.
