Detailed Description

Small-scale map showing Kīlauea's east rift zone flow field as of August 16, 2013. The active Peace Day flow, which is carrying lava to the ocean, is light orange. The inactive Kahauale‘a flow from early 2013 is pink. The active Kahauale‘a 2 flow north of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō is shown in shades of red, with light red showing the flow area on July 26, and bright red showing flow expansion since then. Older lava flows are labeled with the years in which they were active. Episodes 1-48b flows (1983-1986) are shown in gray; episodes 48c-49 flows (1986-1992) are pale yellow; episodes 50-55 flows (1992-2007) are tan; and episodes 58-60 flows (2007-2011) are pale orange. The Peace Day lava tube is shown by the yellow line. The Peace Day tube where it crosses the coastal plain is not obvious and has not been mapped. The contour interval for topographic lines shown on Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō is 5 m.
