Detailed Description

Another view of the ocean entry points and discolored water at Kupapa‘u. The thermal camera today showed that water surface temperatures were up 50 degrees Celsius (122 degrees Fahrenheit) a short distance out from the entry points. Just beyond the ocean entry, the light colored areas represent active breakouts. On the pali, fume marks the path of the lava tube. The bump on the horizon at the very left edge of the image is Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō, the site of the vent for these flows.
