Transcript of Mt. Kilauea

Mt. Kilauea is located in Hawaii on the island of Big Island. The volcano is located on the southern shore. Its coordinates are 19° 25 15.95 N, 155° 17 12.34 W. The way that Mt. Kilauea got its location is because it was created when the Pacific tectonic plate moved over the Hawaiian Hotspot. A hotspot is a place where the rocks melt and generate magma.
Mt. Kilauea is also a shield volcano. A shield volcano is a type of volcano usually built almost entirely of fluid lava flows. HISTORY Mt. Kilauea was formed about 300,000- 600,000 years ago. It has been active ever since . It emerged from the sea from about 50,000 - 100,000 years ago. Mt. Kilauea was by several incremental collapses 500-210 years ago. It was also called Kilauea Caldera.

ACTIVE! Last Eruption
Mt. Kilauea's last
eruption was in
January 3, 1983. The impact of the last eruption wasn't very interesting. The only thing that happened was that the lava spewed out and created more land after it cooled. Mt.

Instead it is located on a hotspot. A hotspot is an area where there is a mantle plume. http://sincedutch.files.wordpress.com/2012/10/kilauea_ali_20101961351029853.jpg?w=598&h=399 http://www.wallpowper.com/wallpaper/2012/08/18/volcano-kilauea-hawaii-mount-ruapehu-new-zealand-the-big-show-498295.jpg http://www.tc.pbs.org/wnet/nature/files//home/wnetwp/webroot/wnet/wpcontent/blogs.dir/3/files/2008/09/gal11.jpg http://i2.squidoocdn.com/resize/squidoo_images/590/draft_lens19132118module156963654photo_1329223586aa-a--aa-.jpg Video: Mt.
