The McCartys lava flow is located in El Malpais National Monument, near Grants, New Mexico. www.nps.gov/elma/index.htm
The flow is ~3,500 years old and stretches for ~50 km. This pan shows an elongate crack (tumulus) that formed within lava emplaced early in the eruption (phase 1) surrounded by platforms where the lava flow has inflated to a much higher elevation. The crack is ~60 m long and 2.5 to 3 m deep. The crack is located near the Lava Falls Trail.
Investigation of inflated lava flows helps us to understand similar processes that occur on the Moon and Mars.
Field research is supported by NASA's Planetary Geology and Geophysics program and NASA's Moon and Mars Analog Mission Activities program.
