  1. The lava is a problem because of its low-viscosity and high solidus temperature. This is caused by its low-sodium content. Dump sodium carbonate on the leading edge. The lava should be come more viscose and solidify. You can not stop its flow but strategic placement of sodium carbonate can protect certain structures by re-directing its flow direction.
