Detailed Description

This roadcut exposes a cross section of a portion of the Fissure 8 flow that was ‘a‘ā. When ‘a‘ā flows are active, the core of the flow is fluid and moves downslope, with the rubbly clinker on the top surface carried along like a conveyor belt. This roadcut exposes the dense core that was the fluid portion, topped by the layer of rubbly clinker. USGS photo by M. Patrick.
