HVO looks to European colleagues for new strategies

Detailed Description

This May 6, 2013, image was captured by the Advanced Land Imager sensor aboard NASA's Earth Observing 1 satellite. Images like this provide useful observations of volcanic activity between HVO's field visits to eruption sites. Bright red pixels, which depict areas of high temperatures, show several areas of active or recently active lava flows on Kīlauea's East Rift Zone flow field. Smaller red spots on the coastline show the ocean entry, where lava exits the active tube and spills into the water.
