Kalapana Ocean Entry

Kalapana Ocean Entry

This is where the main G61 lava flow enters the ocean. The earth here is so unstable that cliff shelf collapses are incredibly often, so often that only a few weeks after this photo was taken, the build-up of the lava and the shelf behind it disappeared into the ocean below, adding to the expansion of the Big Island.
