Field Work in Hawaii

Earlier this month, a team of scientists from @RIS4E_SSERVI in addition to @NASA_ARES scientists and a NASA astronaut were out in the field in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.  They were conducting a geologic field study documenting information to help understand variables explorers might be confronted with when exploring a new planetary environment. Check out the article that was published on the Earth Observatory’s image of the day website that provides additional detail about the #CrewEarthObs image of Kilauea shown here (top image) and the group’s field work on the 1974 flow (bottom images).  The article is available at: http://eol.jsc.nasa.gov/Collections/EarthObservatory/articles/PlanetaryExplorationonEarth.htm
