Detailed Description

This thermal image shows the front of the Kahauale‘a 2 flow. Summit deflation a week ago caused a reduction in lava supply to the flow and the flow front stalled, and is now inactive. Over the past few days, resumed summit inflation has driven new breakouts (shown by white and yellow colors) on the flow that are behind the stalled flow front. The vent for the Kahauale‘a 2 flow is on Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō, marked in the upper left. Compare this thermal image to the visual image above.
