Caption: Pahoehoe lava. Flow of pahoehoe lava from Kilauea Volcano, Hawaii, USA, entering the Pacific Ocean. This thick ropy-looking lava may flow at up to 50 kilometres per hour. Pahoehoe lava is a type of basic lava with a low silica content, giving it a low melting point. This means the lava can travel great distances from the crater or vent from which it was issued. Photographed in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.
