Caption: Hawaiian islands. Satellite image of the islands of the state of Hawaii, USA, in the Pacific Ocean. North is at top. Centre is Big Island, whilst curving left from this are: Maui, Lana'i, Molokai, O'ahu and Kaua'i (twin island). The windward side (north-east) of each island is lusher than that of the leeward sides (south-west). This is due to the larger rainfall, which is brought by the wind. The islands lie on a "hot spot", an unusually hot region of the Earth's mantle. An undersea volcano south east of Big Island may one day create a new island. Image taken on 20 January 2005.
