When the eruption of a volcano in Hawaii? What will happen to the lava?

The lava of the volcano Kilauea, which emerged in the Bay Kapoho, created almost half a kilometer of new land. Stream the volcano is still very active, and there is no way to know when the eruption will end, or even intensified due to the opening of new holes for the eruption of lava, according to the USGS. We will remind, fast-moving lava poured out in low-lying coastal areas of Hawaii in just two days this week, destroying hundreds of homes. Earlier .

"Lava continues to flow into the ocean along a broad front in the Gulf Kapoho and continues to creep North from what is left from the beaches Kapoho beach," says geologist Janet Babb of USGS.

Moving in the direction of the Bay, the lava vaporized the largest freshwater lake of Hawaii, which in some places was several hundred meters deep. New land in the Gulf Kapoho now belongs to the state, but the Peninsula will not be similar to an agricultural Paradise in the area of the Big island who have been before.

Depending on climate, precipitation, and other variables, the new vegetation can begin to grow quickly, but that land became fertile and lush tropical forest will require much more time.

"how soon vegetation will return to the place of a lava flow depends on the types of lava and the amount of precipitation in the area," says Babb. "On the island of Kona is streaks, which are much older than some drips on the Eastern Hawaii, but they have much less vegetation, and it reflects only the difference in precipitation".

Employee of the national Park service found a small tree moans during a tour of the two-year dead thread in Kalapana last week. Rain plays a crucial role in the restoration of vegetation. First, there is a lot of ferns, and with them, the tree moans. But the ground remains unpredictable, and as soon as the lava cools and hardens, it will leave a jagged, charred landscape with jagged fragments of volcanic rocks.

Any new land mass, formed by lava, will be owned by the state. But the ocean and lava — unstable combination, so things can change. The ocean can easily bring down the newly formed breed.

Lava Kilauea destroyed more than 600 homes since the start of the eruption.
