This article focuses on the lava flow from Kilauea, one of the world's most active volcanoes. A new crack was observed by scientists on Kilauea, Hawaii and steam and lava were coming out of the crack. According to scientist James Kauahikaua, numerous visitors have been rushing to take a peek at the latest lava flow. Since 1983, the volcano has been erupting and oozing lava.

    Abstract  The most voluminous eruption of natrocarbonatite lava hitherto recorded on Earth occurred at Oldoinyo Lengai in March–April 2006. The lava flows produced in this eruption range from blocky 'a'a type to smooth-surfaced inflated pahoehoe. We measured lava inflation features...

    The recent finding of mafic enclaves in the Rocche Rosse (RR) lava flow, the last magmatic product on Lipari (Aeolian Islands, Italy) (AD 1230 ± 40), opens the possibility to investigate in detail the most recent magmatic system of the island, an important issue for the volcanic hazard...

    Deposits from episode 1 of the 1969-1974 Mauna Ulu eruption of KÄ«lauea provide an exceptional opportunity to study processes of low intensity Hawaiian fissure fountains. Episode 1 lava flows passed through dense forest that had little impact on flow dynamics; in contrast, the pattern of...
