    Hawaiian Islands in Figure ,which shows some of Earth’s active volcanoes. The volcanoes that make up the Hawaiian Islands, which include Kilauea and Mauna Loa, are made of basalt. Surtsey, which formed south of Iceland in , is another basaltic volcano. Andesitic magma has the same composition as St. The Hawaiian Islands (Figure above) are in the central Pacific islands are volcanoes that increase in age from southeast to northwest. The youngest island is the Big Island of Hawaii at the southeast end of the chain. The volcanoes get older through Maui, Kahoolawe, Lanai, Molokai, Oahu, Kauai, and Niihau Islands through the northwest.

Origin of the Hawaiian Islands: Recent studies indicate that the Hawaiian volcanic chain is a result of relative motion between the Pacific plate and a melting spot in the Earth’s mantle. Am.

    The roots of the world's great mountain ranges contain some of the oldest rocks on the surface of the Earth. Some of these rocks are over billion years old!! These rocks were once buried deep inside the Earth and have been raised into mountains by the collisions of the plates. These plates travel at a very slow rate about 1 to 4 inches per. In this exercise, students use whole-rock Sr isotopic compositions of volcanic rocks in the western United States to explore variability in mantle sources. The isotopic data are obtained from the North American Volcanic and Intrusive Database (NAVDAT) and analyzed using an interactive plotting and mapping tools at the NAVDAT website.

INTRODUCTION. Volcanoes of widely varying size, shape and origin occur on the seafloor around the main Hawaiian Islands (e.g. Holcomb & Robinson, ).Some are satellite vents formed coevally with the giant shield volcanoes (e.g.

Mauna Loa; Wanless et al., ), most are related to rejuvenated or secondary volcanism (e.g. around the islands of Ni`ihau and Ka`ula; Clague et al., ; Garcia. Hypothesized to be derived from Cretaceous marine sedimentary rocks, selenium contamination of the Kesterson National Wildlife Refuge is traced through irrigation drainage to the source bedrock of the California Coast Ranges.

This biogeochemical pathway of selenium is defined here as the “Kesterson effect.” At the refuge ponds, this effect culminated in in a 64% rate of deformity and.

Its occurrence has been determined in a wide variety of rocks, minerals, lunar and volcanic materials, fossil fuels, soils, plant materials, and waters.
