View of vent and dome fountain

Detailed Description

HVO geologists shared this look through the laser rangefinder viewfinder, showing the west vents in Halema‘uma‘u and the dome fountain in the lava lake. The small dome fountain rises above the lake crust in front of the west vents and is probably from a submerged portion of the vent. USGS photo by K. Lynn.
