The Hawaiian Hotspot (Part 1: The Basics) - Stream Highlight

8:20 PM · Feb 14, 2021

In this multipart stream highlight we review recent and traditional science on the Hawaiian mantle plume, a.k.a. the “hot spot”, where it comes from, why it's under Hawaiʻi, how it connects to plate tectonics and the creation of the Hawaiian-Emperor Archipelago. Philip Ong goes in deep, explaining some of the dynamics at play from the depths of the earth and how they relate to our volcanoes, both past and present. This will be a multipart series taken from our Wednesday, Feb 10th update. The original, full length presentation is still available on our YouTube (Hawaii PODD).
