Detailed Description

Coastal plain breakouts and ocean entry sites. Photograph p0840 (Jan. 29, 1998), a near-vertical oblique view southwest along coastline, with Waha`ula entry in foreground and east Kamokuna entry 900 m distant in background. Discoloration in ocean results as lava flows are disrupted by steam explosions and wave action along the shoreline. Some of the resultant debris drifts along shore to build new black sand beaches.
