Photograph of a laboratory experiment which models the formation of lava channels. Molten polyethylene glycol wax flows down on a sloping plane and solidifies in contact with cold overlying water. The molten wax is transparent, the solidified wax is white, and the base of the tank is black with a white 20 cm grid.
