Kīlauea Volcano — Lava Delta at Kapoho Bay

Fish eye lens view of Kapoho Bay

Detailed Description

This fish-eye view of the lava delta filling the former Kapoho Bay shows that while the delta margin nearest the ocean has cooled somewhat, the lava flow front is still very hot and producing laze (lava haze). Laze is a local hazard composed of acidic gases and volcanic glass fragments and should be avoided.
