June 27 flow continues advancing through forest northeast of Pu‘u ‘...

Detailed Description

The June 27 flow remains active, and has advanced further into the forest over the past week. The flow front today was 8.5 km (5.3 miles) northeast of the vent on Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō (see "map" link above for current flow field map). The flow's continued brisk advance rate is likely related, in part, to its continued confinement by local topography. Today, the narrow flow front was within one of the many linear depressions (grabens) on the East Rift Zone. Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō can be seen in the distance.
