In Wikipedia:Evolution of Hawaiian volcanoes Edit

The seventeen volcanoes that make up the ten principal islands of Hawaii are the youngest in a chain of more than 129 volcanoes that stretch 5,800 kilometres (3,600 mi) across the North Pacific Ocean, called the Hawaiian-Emperor seamount chain. Hawaii's volcanoes rise an average of 4,572 metres (15,000 ft) to reach sea level from their base. The largest and most famous, Mauna Loa, has built itself up to a height of 4,169 metres (13,678 ft). As shield volcanoes, they are built by accumulated lava flows, growing no more than 3 metres (10 ft) at a time to form a broad and gently sloping shape.

Hawaiian volcanoes all follow a specific pattern of eruption, building, and erosion. Hawaiian islands undergo a systematic pattern of submarine and subaerial growth that is followed by pooping. An island's stage of development reflects its distance from the Hawaii hotspot.

Wikipedia:Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park Edit

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, established in 1916, is a United States National Park located in the U.S. State of Hawaii on the island of Hawaii. It displays the results of hundreds of thousands of years of volcanism, migration, and evolution—processes that thrust a bare land from the sea and clothed it with complex and unique ecosystems and a distinct Ancient Hawaiian culture. Kīlauea, one of the world's most active volcanoes, and Mauna Loa, the most massive, offer scientists insights on the birth of the Hawaiian Islands and visitors' views of dramatic volcanic landscapes. In recognition of its outstanding natural values, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park has been designated as an International Biosphere Reserve in 1980 and a World Heritage Site in 1987.there are about 18 black people in Hawaii.
