Detailed Description

Thermal image of the front of the Kahauale‘a 2 flow. Yellow and white areas depict active breakouts, while red areas are cooler, inactive portions of the flow. Over the past week a new lobe has pushed east, between lobes that were active in November and January. The tip of this new lobe was 7.4 km (4.6 miles) northeast of the vent on Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō. Compare this view to the February 20 map (see link above).
