Caption: Hawaiian islands, artwork. This Pacific volcanic island chain has formed due to the action of a 'hot spot', an upwelling plume of hot material from the Earth's mantle. The oldest islands are at left, with the most recent island (Hawaii) at right, with the even younger active underwater volcano (seamount) of Loihi at far right. The islands (from left) are: Niihau, Kauai, Oahu, Lanai, Molokai, Maui and Hawaii. The eighth island, Kahoolawe (not labelled), is in front of Maui. Three shield volcanoes are labelled on Hawaii: Hualalai (2521 metres), Mauna Loa (4169 metres), and Mauna Kea (4207 metres). Of these, Mauna Loa is active, while Mauna Kea and Hualalai are dormant.
