        The Hawaiian Islands are a unique island group in that they are an excellent example of land formed from a geologic process that has only recenlty been explored fully by geologists. The islands have been formed from a combination of different sub-surface volcanic activities. This visualization of the process, which comes from the Voyange to Kure episode of Jean-Michel Cousteau: Ocean Adventures, incorporates the different geoligic processes which have created the islands over thousands of years.

        This resource was adapted from "Voyage to Kure"
