Volcanism is the most obvious endogenic expression of Earth's internal heat. Magma rises to the surface and hardens into new crustal rock. Unlike folding which produces mountains and valleys out of existing hard rock, volcanism can produce mountains, valleys, and other landforms by creating new material. The course will feature diverse discussions such as global volcanism, volcano types, volcanic eruption types and products, volcanic edifices, pyroclastic fall and flow deposits, volcanic hazards and benefits, the characterization of volcanic deposits, and impacts of volcanism on society, using the shield volcanoes in Hawai’i as a field location. Recommended reading about Hawaii: We present you a small selection of available, mostly recent books about Hawai'i, focussing on its geology and general topics.

Lava flowing over a water- or ice-rich surface can induce explosive vaporization of the water, leading to the formation of small rootless volcanic cones.
Hawaiian Volcanoes, From Source to Surface is the outcome of an AGU Chapman Conference held on the Island of Hawai‘i in August As such, this monograph contains a diversity of research results that highlight the current understanding of how Hawaiian volcanoes work and point out fundamental questions requiring additional exploration. Here is some additional general age information from the book Volcanoes in the Sea, 2nd Ed. by Macdonald, Abbott and Peterson (). This book can be purchased at: Island. ISLAND OF HAWAIʻI, Hawaii — A new book summarizing years of observing Hawaiian volcanoes is now available online, with printed copies to follow U.S. Geological Survey monograph describes the current scientific understanding of Hawaiian volcanoes – built on the work done since the USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory was . Modern science could not exist without exchange of data and ideas. The exchange can be informal –– at meetings and in casual conversations –– or formal –– in papers or books that can be studied and debated for years to.
