Detailed Description

The Pūlama pali is one of several steep fault scarps that cut the south flank of the Island of Hawai‘i. This image shows the steepest part of the Pūlama pali as viewed from the coastal plain. The fume on the face of the pali marks the trace of the active lava tube carrying lava to the ocean, which is behind the photographer. An HVO geologist, in orange, walks across the flow in the foreground.
