Pāhoehoe Lava flows in the open lava channel (not in a Lava tube) with overflows at both sides. The lava flow is due to July 21, 2007 fissure eruption at Kīlauea volcano. The channel is crusting over with a v-shaped opening pointing upstream. The crusting-over process usually starts at the upstream end, the crust grows downstream for a considerable distance, then the crust founders and sinks opening the channel to crusting over again.
