Map of Hawaii

Hawaii is a group of volcanic islands located in the central Pacific Ocean(Hawaii, n.d.). The state comprises eight main islands, including Hawaii (also known as the Big Island), Maui, Oahu, Kauai, Molokai, Lanai, Niihau, and Kahoolawe(Hawaii Maps & Facts, n.d.). The islands are spread over 2,500 km and lie 2,397 miles (3,857 km) from San Francisco, California, to the east(Hawaii, n.d.). Hawaii is the 50th state of the United States and is the only state located outside North America(Map of the State of Hawaii, USA, n.d.). The state capital is Honolulu, located on the island of Oahu(Map of the State of Hawaii, USA, n.d.).

The Hawaiian Islands were formed through volcanic activity and are located over a hotspot in the Earth's mantle, where magma from the mantle rises to the surface(How were the Hawaiian islands formed?, n.d.). The islands consist of 137 volcanic islands that comprise almost the entire Hawaiian archipelago, with the exception of Midway Atoll, which is outside the state(Hawaii, n.d.). The islands' formation and characteristics have contributed to their unique topography, which includes volcanoes, mountain ranges, and lava fields(Hawaii Map, n.d.). The island of Hawaii, the largest island in the state, is formed by five volcanoes, including Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa, Kilauea, Kohala, and Hualalai(Hawaii, n.d.). These volcanoes are connected by lava saddles, forming a unique landscape(Hawaii, n.d.). The island of Maui is home to the dormant volcano Haleakala, which stands at 10,023 feet above sea level(Hawaii Maps & Facts, n.d.).
