Spatter cone on NW side of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō's crater floor

Spatter cone on northwest side of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō's crater floor...

Detailed Description

There are currently four spatter cones on the floor of the Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō crater that have been the source of lava flows over the past several months. The one shown here is on the northwest side of the crater floor, close to the multiframe webcam shown on our website. The webcam, and an HVO geologist standing next to it, give a sense of scale for the spatter cone. The camera to the right of the person is the thermal camera on Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō shown on our website.
