Why does Hawaii experience volcanism?

The Hawaiian Islands formed over a hotspot in the Pacific Ocean, where magma formed a column and rose through the Earth's crust, causing volcanic activity. The hotspot stays fixed as the Earth's plates move over it, which is why, currently, no island but the Big Island experiences volcanic eruptions.

Where do the Hawaiian Islands form?

The Hawaiian-Emperor island chain consists of volcanic seamounts formed over a "hotspot" below the constantly-moving Pacific Plate. The spot is located just SE of the big island of Hawaii (which continues to grow from the magma released under it). The hotspot has existed for at least 82 million years. The "newest" island to form over the hotspot is the Lo'ihi Seamount, which began to grow about 400,000 years ago and is still about 3000 feet underwater. It is expected to reach sea level in about another 100,000 years.


What happens to the age of the Hawaiian Islands moving away from the hotspot?

The youngest Hawaiian island is the one directly over the hotspot and their age increases as they move further away.

Where are hotspots located?

Hotspots are located all over the world. Two famous ones are the Hawaiian Islands and Yellowstone National Park in Montana. The Hawaiian Islands are formed when the Pacific plate moves over the hotspot. When the lava spews out from the hotspot, a volcano forms over the hotspot. When the plate shifts, the volcano is moved and becomes dormant. The hotspot then just creates a new volcano. The biggest volcano in Hawaii is Mauna Loa, and the youngest is my personal favorite, Loihi.


How many Verizon Wireless internet service hotspot locations are there?

Why is there only one hawaiian island with volcanic activity?

The islands of Hawaii have been formed from lava flowing up from the seafloor in the central Pacific. This "hotspot" has stayed in the same place as the ocean floor slowly moved NW due to crustal spreading. As each island moved away from the hotspot, it lost the supply of new lava from below. Only the volcanoes of the "big island" (Hawaii) and a smaller underwater seamount (Loihi) are currently spewing new lava. Eventually the big island's volcanoes will also stop as it moves off the hotspot after a few thousand years.
