The most productive volcanic systems on Earth are hidden under an average of 8, feet (2, m) of water. Some volcanic eruptions are explosive and others are not. The explosivity of an eruption depends on the composition of the magma. If magma is thin and runny, gases can escape easily from it. When this type of magma erupts, it flows out of the volcano. A good example is the eruptions at Hawaii’s volcanoes.

    Plate Tectonics: with most volcanoes being located near or on plate boundaries, this relationship exists because spreading or sinking lithospheric plates at plate boundaries interact with other earth materials to produce molten rock called magma (within the earth), or lava, when it erupts onto the earth's surface.

[Formation of the Islands] [Active Hawaiian Volcanoes] [General Info] The Hawaiian Islands are volcanic in origin. Each island is made up of at least one primary volcano, although many islands are composites of more than one. The Big Island, for instance, is constructed of 5 major volcanoes: Kilauea, Mauna Loa, Mauna Kea, Hualalai and Kohala.

A volcano is a rupture in the crust of a planetary-mass object, such as Earth, that allows hot lava, volcanic ash, and gases to escape from a magma chamber below the surface. Earth's volcanoes occur because its crust is broken into 17 major, rigid tectonic plates that float on a hotter, softer layer in its mantle.
