Description

The McCartys lava flow is located in El Malpais National Monument, near Grants, New Mexico. www.nps.gov/elma/index.htm Will open in a new tab or window
The flow is ~3,500 years old and stretches for ~50 km.

This pan shows an "arm" of lava that has broken out from along the margin of one of the inflated sheet lobes.
The height of the platform margin is 14 m.

Investigation of inflated lava flows helps us to understand similar processes that occur on the Moon and Mars.
