English translation:lava flow/eruption
Explanation:
Lava is molten rock expelled by a volcano during an eruption. When first expelled from a volcanic vent, it is a liquid at temperatures from 700 °C to 1,200 °C (1,300 °F to 2,200 °F). Although lava is quite viscous, with about 100,000 times the viscosity of water, it can flow great distances before cooling and solidifying, because of its thixotropic and shear thinning properties.[1][2]

A lava flow is a moving outpouring of lava, which is created during a non-explosive effusive eruption.
