The outlines of the 1998 lava flows and fissures were published in Chadwick et al. (2013). This geological interpretation was created using submersible observations, multibeam and sidescan sonar data, and MBARI AUV high-resolution bathymetry. The data files are in shapefile format in both geographic and UTM projections and were generated with funding from NOAA/PMEL and NSF grant OCE07-25605.
