Aerial of ocean entry plume

Detailed Description

The fissure 8 lava flow reaches the ocean at Kapoho Bay, where a lava delta has formed and continues to grow as lava enters the sea. The largest white laze plume marks the main point where lava is entering the sea, but smaller active entry points persist along the entire leading margin of the flow.
