Lava continues to flow from the September 21 fissure that opened in the west flank of Pu`u `O`o. Early last week there was activity flowing both northeast and sountheast from the fissure. The southeastern activity was along the edges of previous flows from this fissure. The southeaster activity was along the edges of previous flows from this fissure. Fielf work on Thursday measured the flows to the southeast, they extended 1.6 miles (2.6km) from the fissure. A section of this flow has become has become tubed over. Flow activity continues in these two directions. Activity within the crater varied, when the end of the crater drained. It remained emply for several days, with the unsupported side-wall filled the depression. On Saturday a flow of lava from a source near the east wall filled the depression and overflowed onto other portions of the crater floor. All east rift activity is within the park or on adjacent state lands.

 

火山是地球起源的原始证据。 火山的喷发提醒我们,我们的地球家园是一个不断变化的环境,其基本变化原则超出人类的掌控之外。在人类尽其所能改变地球满足自身需求的同时,面对火山喷发等自然现象,我们只能心怀敬畏
