How would you like to live on the side of a volcano? On The Big Island of Hawaii, people can experience this during their vacation at KMC, a military camp located near the volcano Kilauea. There are currently three active volcanoes in the state of Hawaii, all of them being on or very close to the Big Island. Mauna Loa is the oldest of them, Kilauea is the most active, and Loihi is so young in comparison to the others that it hasn’t even breached the ocean’s surface. As of 2017, The Big Island is home to a population of 186,738 while 953,207 people live on the nearby island of Oahu.
Mauna Kea Imagine the most breath- taking view. Do you think you could ever stop looking? If there was one place I 'd like to go, it would be Mauna Kea. Mauna Kea is a shield/ hotspot volcano located on the Big Island of Hawaii. I want to go to Mauna Kea because of the beautiful summit, exciting topography, as well as the otherworldly drive up and down the mountain.
Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is located on the Island of Hawaii, 96 miles from Kailua-Kona and 30 miles from Hilo, and displays a fascinating world of biological diversity and history. The park boasts numerous trails, each displaying its own unique physical features.
Waking up at 2:00 AM in the Hawaii-Aleutian time zone was not difficult for me, my best friend, and her parents because our biological clocks were still set on the central time zone. It was 9:00 PM at home in St. Louis, Missouri. Nevertheless, it was an odd hour to prepare for an adventure. We dressed ourselves in sweatshirts, sweatpants, and snowsuits to keep warm. After getting into a van with other tourists, we rode to the top of an inactive volcano named Haleakala National Park located in Maui, Hawaii. This park and the entire volcano is known for its endangered species and sub-tropical rain forest. Considerably, the most amazing part of Haleakala National Park is the view from the top. The snowsuits came in handy as we stepped outside into the cool and crisp air. Just 30 minutes ago we were in 80-degree weather and now, we could see our foggy breaths and began to accumulate chill bumps on our bodies.
Geology of the Hawaiian Island Chain The chain of Hawaiian Islands formed as the Pacific plate moved over a hot spot in the mantle of the Earth. The plate slowly moves northwestward at a rate of about 32 miles per million years. The northwestern islands are older and generally smaller due to prolonged exposure and erosion. Plate tectonics, types of volcanoes, hot spots, and sea mounts, are all an important part of the geology of the hawaiian island chain.
#31 Zongpei Yang Introduction: Volcanoes come in different sizes and shapes. There is a different kind of volcanoes in the world in different areas for example the desert or just normal grasslands. What I think of volcanoes is lava flowing from a mountain or that’s what I think. The volcano that I am doing is named Mount Shasta the fifth tallest mountain in the world!
The volcano I pick was Mt Mauna Loa. This volcano has erupted about 32 times for the eruption of 1984. Mauna Loa is about 600,000- 1 million years old and hasn’t erupted as much as Kilauea and when it erupts it produces huge rivers of lava and threatens towns nearby. Mauna Loa is the second tallest volcano in the world. The elevation is 13,679 feet high.
On the beautiful, tropical island of Hawaii, a structure that is not only large, but also deadly and packed with heat, is called the Mauna Loa. In the native Hawaiian language, "Mauna Loa" means “long mountain” and it has definitely earned that name. It is a volcano that towers over Hawaii and is the biggest volcanic structure in the world. This structure is also the most active volcano and mountain in the world. It is located in the south central area of the small island, Hawaii in the United States which is also located on the North Pacific Ocean.
In Urban area many animals are adapting to walking/running on concrete. This means that in the event that world destruction was to occur and these animals were forced to run and catch food on their own in the wild it will be a great struggle for them. Animals have adapted to sponging off of the garbage put out by us humans to go to a waste land which is also very detrimental to the environment. Along with many animals adapting to different types of "land" there are also a handful of animals who were not able to adapt and sadly died
On May 18th, 1980, thirty-five years ago, Mt St. Helens erupted and changed the course of history. This towering Washington volcano is part of the Pacific Ring of Fire. During the eruption the mountain spewed hot gases, rocks and, ash into the sky causing a mud flow down the mountain 's sides. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration," this was the deadliest and most economically destructive volcanic event in the history of the United States".
On May 18th, 1980, Mount Saint Helen, a volcano in Washington erupted majorly. The eruption is the most studied volcano eruption. Mt. St. Helen was known as one of the most prestige volcanoes in the Cascade Range before its eruption on May 18, 1980. The eruption made a big blast that destroyed the northern part of the volcano, crushing millions of the trees below the mountain. The zone was further described as a big debris avalanche.
Waikanaloa Wet Cave is located on the north side of Kauai directly off of Highway 560. There has been some debate that the name of this cave was erroneously switched with the wet cave farther off the road called Waikapala’e. There is also a nearby dry cave called Maniniholo. Hawaiians believe that the fire goddess, Pele, gifted these caves to her lover but she later abandoned them when they became filled with water. There is parking conveniently located next to the Waikanaloa Wet Cave’s entrance.
