Detailed Description

The Kamokuna ocean entry remains active, with recent lava flows spreading out over the surface of the lava delta. The spot where the lava tube exits the seacliff is visible, and a ramp of solidifed lava has been built here. Lava then flows into a tube on the lava delta, and finally flows into the water at several spots, marked by the gas plume.
