Low-productivity hawaiian volcanism between Kaua‘i and O‘ahu. Weis, Dominique


The longest distance between subaerial shield volcanoes in the Hawaiian Islands is between the islands of Kaua‘i and O‘ahu, where a field of submarine volcanic cones formed astride the axis of the Hawaiian chain during a period of low magma productivity. The submarine volcanoes lie ∼25–30 km west of Ka‘ena Ridge that extends ∼80 km from western O‘ahu. These volcanoes were sampled by three Jason2 dives. The cones are flat topped,
