Detailed Description

View to the northwest looking at the active flows (center of photo). Activity over the past few weeks has built a broad, low rootless shield (a shield-shaped mound of lava built on the flow field, not the vent), and there has been little advancement downslope. Flows from the shield are slowly burying the ‘A‘ā flow built on September 21 and 22 (dark-colored flow on left side of photo).
