Shaded-relief map of ERZ near flow front

Shaded-relief map of East Rift Zone near flow front...

Detailed Description

This shaded-relief map, with digital surface data provided by the Carnegie Airborne Observatory, shows some of the cracks, faults, and grabens (down-dropped blocks between adjacent faults; http://earthquake.usgs.gov/learn/glossary/?term=graben) that are present in KÄ«lauea's East Rift Zone, and which have partly controlled the June 27th flow's advance direction. The June 27th flow as of September 8, 2014, at 12:45 PM is shown in pink, while flow advance since then (as of ~2:45 PM on September 10) is shown in red. At the time of the mapping, the flow was advancing toward the northeast.
