The 70-sq-km Amboy lava field in southern California is composed mostly of vesicular pahoehoe lava flows that form a hummocky terrain with a surface relief of 2-5 m. Lava tubes are not present in the Amboy flows, which display abundant tumuli and pressure ridges. Light-colored deposits of aeolian sand, thicker to thw SW, fill depressions in the lava flow.
