Thermal map of lava flow

Thermal map of lava flow...

Detailed Description

This image shows a thermal map of the flow on the pali and coastal plain, created from airborne thermal images. White pixels are hot, and show areas of active surface breakouts. The background image is a satellite image collected before the current lava flow was active. The thermal map shows several areas of active breakouts on the pali, in addition to several active areas on the coastal plain. The largest area of activity is on the coastal plain, closer to the base of the pali. The flow front had scattered surface activity but the leading tip of the flow had stalled.
