2. Geoscientists finally solve mystery of Hawaiian volcanoes
From May 11, 2017:
New research has solved a long-standing mystery of how the world's biggest and most active volcanoes formed in Hawaii. The research, published recently in the journal
, involved an international team of geoscientists from the United States, Australia, U.K. and Denmark. The study found that Hawaiian volcanoes formed along twin tracks — named the Loa and Kea tracks after the largest volcanoes in their sequence — due to a shift in the Pacific Plate's direction three million years ago.
