The Big Island of Hawai‘i presents ample opportunities for young planetary volcanologists to gain firsthand field experience in the analysis of analogs to landforms seen on Mercury, Venus, the Moon, Mars, and Io. In this contribution, we focus on a subset of the specific features that are included in the planetary volcanology field workshops described in the previous chapter in this volume. In particular, we discuss how remote-sensing data and field localities in Hawai‘i can help a planetary geologist to gain expertise in the analysis of lava flows and lava flow fields, to understand the best sensor for a specific application, to recognize the ways in which different data sets can be used synergistically for remote interpretations of lava flows, and to gain a deeper appreciation for the spatial scale of features that might be imaged in the planetary context.
