Detailed Description

This Quicktime movie shows typical activity at the summit lava lake. Spattering at the summit lava lake has been common over the past several years, and today's winds provided a clear view of the primary spatter area on the lake margin. The lava lake today was about 50 m (160 ft) below the floor of Halema‘uma‘u Crater. The spattering is driven by bursting gas bubbles, with spatter thrown as high as 30 m (100 ft).
