Peace Day and Kahauale‘a 2 flow fields...

Detailed Description

Small-scale map showing the active Peace Day flow, carrying lava southeast to the ocean, and the active Kahauale‘a 2 flow north of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō, as of June 11, 2013. The Kahauale‘a 2 flow started on May 6 and continues to spread slowly on the lower flank and at the northern base of the Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō cone. Breakouts near the base of the pali widened the western edge of the Peace Day flow, part of which is in Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park. Older lava flows are labeled with the years in which they were active. Episodes 1-48b (1983-1986) are shown in gray; episodes 48c-49 (1986-1992) are pale yellow; episodes 50-55 (1992-2007) are tan; and episodes 58-60 (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 (~16 ft).
