Anderson, Kuntz y Davis (1999) a partir del analisis de ensayos de bombeo en pozos localizados en el acuifero Snake River Plain en Idaho, Estados Unidos, correlacionan las altas permeabilidades obtenidas en flujos basalticos blocosos tipo pahoehoe
(0,035 hasta 11,29 cm/s) con su cercania a las fisuras eruptivas que les dieron origen.
The lava assemblage of Sahyadri group consists of alternating sequence of Pahoehoe
and 'aa' flows (GSI, 1976).
Roy observes: the shapes of turtles found in the lava of the pahoehoe
islets of Kamakahonu, later referred to by missionaries as 'The Plymouth Rock' of Hawai'i, are significant to history.
The Cave Basalt is a clearly-definable flow of pahoehoe
lava approximately 9 [mi.
Glacier & Craters of the Moon & other National Park Service Sites & Attractions in Montana & Idaho" explores Glacier National Park and its incredible hiking and wildlife viewing options, the Craters of the Moon National Monument & Preserve in which one can witness three types of pahoehoe
lava with islets of cinder cones and sagebrush, and much more.
Or the Big Island--losing myself in the volcanoes, looking for where the earth bleeds fire between patches of pahoehoe
and a'a lava formations.
The smoother rock," Mark told the boys earlier in his penetrating voice, using the Hawaiian terms and pronunciation, "is Pahoehoe
, and the sharper, jagged stuff is A'a.
On Earth, lava coils can be found on the Big Island of Hawaii, mainly on the surface of ropey pahoehoe
1995) of were thickened by flow inflation (flow ballooning) due to repeated flow pulses, like pahoehoe
basalts of Kilauea, Hawaii (Dann 2001; Dann and Grove 2007).
The list runs from aboideau to zoonomia, and includes terms such as azotemia, banlieue, etouffee, ibogaine, mazaedia, oceanaut, pahoehoe
, retiarii, thiourea and uxorious.
Basaltic flows that have erupted at low effusion rates or while still hot near their vents have smooth, folded surfaces with a texture called pahoehoe
(a Hawaiian word), the result of plastic stretching of the outer skin as the lava advances; at higher effusion rates, or at lower temperatures farther from the vent, the surface fractures in a more brittle fashion to produce a very rough texture called 'a'a.
While the overlying aa makes excellent building stone, the pahoehoe
beneath it is unsuitable for building because it is too soft, amygdaloidal, and full of mineralized vesicles.
