Image Caption:
Basaltic lavas, like those that erupt on volcanic hot spots or
mid-ocean ridges, are fairly fluid and flow passively down slope.
In this photograph of Hawaii, long black lava flows radiate from
the summit of Mauna Loa volcano. The photograph was taken on 20
June 1983 from an altitude of about 160 n.mi. (296 km) using a
Hasselblad camera equipped with a 100 mm lens and color visible
film. (Photo ID: S7-19-879).
