Kīlauea Volcano — Fissure 8 Lava Flow

View of the lava channel

Detailed Description

The northern channel margin of the fissure 8 lava flow. Small hill in the distance is the site of our PGcam. Overflows from the channel can be seen producing shiny black to silver pahoehoeflows (incandescent red breakout visible in center of photo). These flows are building up the channel margins and making the levees more robust.
