This video from Nature illustrates the powerful impact of a volcanic eruption in Hawaii and traces the lava’s activity from cone to sea. The sea is the only natural substance that can stop a lava flow and it’s an explosive event. These explosions create littoral cones, or more simply, a newly-formed coastline. When the 80 degree water meets 2,000 degree lava, massive amounts of steam surge into the air, which can create miniature weather patterns. While the weather is localized, serious climatic changes like tornados can occur.

This video segment from Nature features Hawaii’s most notorious volcano, Kilauea. Over 10,000 years ago, Kilauea emerged from a hotspot on the ocean floor and began a journey that continues today. This active volcano has made The Big Island the largest in the Hawaiian island chain. In 1983, a vent called Pu’u O’o developed. When the vent erupts, red hot molten lava can explode 1,000 feet into the air, with a sound that is deafening.

This video from Nature describes the dramatic impact volcanic activity has on the Hawaiian landscape. An eruption often leaves behind a destroyed terrain, looking similar to the surface of the moon. To the casual observer, it would appear as through nothing had ever lived on the land. Scientists, however, can see a sketch of what was once there -- trees, lush forests, and large boulders. Within the lava’s destruction, new life also emerges.
