Massive inflated surface flows on the coastal plains of Kīlauea volcano!

This past week has been incredible on our private lava hikes, with multiple breakout locations and very large flows. Watch this GoPro video as the lava inflates and spreads in several directions.

Our guests have gotten some really good photos and video of the current flows - GO SEE THE FLOW WITH A PRO - info@kilaueaecoguides.com

If you are a resident of Hawai’i you may have seen one or both of these geologic wonders up close, or at least as close as the heat emanating from the flows will let you get.
These two kinds of #lava are known all over the world by #Hawaiian names: #pahoehoe for the smooth flow, and ʻaʻā for the jumbled, clinkery flow. When these words were first introduced into scientific literature in 1884, they met with strong opposition from some writers who objected to the use of such "barbarous" terms...but were quickly adopted anyway. Pahoehoe has a smooth, billowy surface, with a wrinkled for ropy appearance. These flows move rapidly, and sometimes divide to surround an obstruction. An ʻaʻā flow has a central molten core with cooling lava rubble riding on a it. The surface is a layer of angular jagged fragments covered with tiny sharp spines. Both flows can speed up and surprise you, so always operate with caution! #VolcanoAwarenessMonth #learn #know #Kīlauea #MaunaLoa #volcanoes #vulcanology #sharp #hot #ow #beprepared #Pele -From the book "Volcano Watching"
