Oozing Lava

Published:

Description

When a lava flow starts to cool, the outer layer of the lava freezes into solid rock, and once the pressure of the liquid inside builds up, the skin cracks open with a loud pop and lava oozes out again. Here, lava oozes from a fresh crack on a cooling lava flow at Mount Kilauea on the big island of Hawai'i.
