Stories of Lava Flows and Volcanic Landscapes from Ka'u to North Kona Featured in Public Talk

Detailed Description

Two prominent, historic lava flows are visible in this aerial photo of West Hawai‘i. Kīholo Bay is flanked by the 1859 Mauna Loa flow (left) and a Hualālai flow that  erupted around 1800 or earlier (right). These lava flows and other volcanic landscapes along Highways 11 and 190 will be the focus of a Volcano Awareness Month talk in Kona on Jan. 22
