Abstract

All subaerial lavas at Mauna Kea volcano, Hawaii, belong to the postshield stage of volcano construction. This stage formed as the magma supply rate from the mantle decreased. It can be divided into two substages: basaltic (~240-70 ka) and hawaiitic (~66-4 ka). The petrogenetic processes forming the postshield lavas at Mauna Kea and other Hawaiian volcanoes reflect movement of the volcano away from the hotspot. -from Authors
