Detailed Description

HVO scientists visited the rim of Halema‘uma‘u this afternoon (11/28) to collect samples of tephra and check for equipment damage. This view, taken on the approach to the Halema‘uma‘u, shows the tephra deposit on the crater rim. New spatter is seen as dark lumps scattered across the center of the image on top of older brown-colored Pele's hair. The closed Halema‘uma‘u overlook is in the background at right; HVO and the Jaggar Museum are on the caldera rim in the distance near upper left.
