Caption: Lava flow. Lava flowing into the sea from Kilauea volcano on the island of Hawaii in the Pacific Ocean. Kilauea is one of the most active volcanoes on Earth. It mainly produces fluid, basaltic lava, which can flow great distances. The lava cools on reaching the sea to form solid rock, thereby increasing the land area of Hawaii. Photographed on 30 September 2001.
