Detailed Description

This thermal image looks southwest towards the vent on Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō, and shows much of the Kahauale‘a 2 flow. Hotter colors (yellow and white) represent active breakouts, while warm colors (red and purple) show recently active portions of the flow. The Kahauale‘a 2 flow consists of numerous scattered breakouts of pāhoehoe lava, with a narrow finger of lava forming the flow front. The flow front today was 5.8 km (3.6 miles) northeast of the vent on Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō.
