Hawaii: Geology, plate tectonics/hot spot

from MarineBio.net

Hawaii is geologically a unique place on Earth because it is caused by a "hot spot." Most islands are found at tectonic plate boundaries either from spreading centers (like Iceland) or from subduction zones (like the Aleutian Islands). There are few hot spots on Earth and the one under Hawaii is right in the middle of one of the largest crustal plates on Earth — the Pacific Plate. more
