Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō and vicinity highlighting active flow from crater...

Detailed Description

Lava flows erupting from four spatter cones (shown as yellow triangles) in Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō crater since the beginning of the year have largely resurfaced the crater floor. These flows are shown in red. The northeastern-most spatter cone continues to feed a flow active at the northern base of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō. This slow-moving flow is spreading across and filling in low spots amidst a vast, nearly flat-lying plain of ‘A‘ā flows erupted from Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō during 1983-1986. Older flows from Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō and nearby vents are also shown.
