Thermal map of fissure system and lava flows...

Detailed Description

This thermal map shows the fissure system and lava flows as of 12:30 pm on Sunday, June 3. The flow from Fissure 8 continues to advance and had a wide flow front advancing towards the ocean in Kapoho. The black and white area is the extent of the thermal map. Temperature in the thermal image is displayed as gray-scale values, with the brightest pixels indicating the hottest areas. The thermal map was constructed by stitching many overlapping oblique thermal images collected by a handheld thermal camera during a helicopter overflight of the flow field. The base is a copyrighted color satellite image (used with permission) provided by Digital Globe.
