is the Halema'uma'u crater located on the volcano of Kilauea in Hawaii. Hawaii exists outside the Ring of Fire in what is known as the Hawaiian Hot Spot. In 1963, Canadian geophysicist J. Tuzo Wilson provided an explanation for the existence of prolific volcanic activity in Hawaii. The USGS writes “According to Wilson, the distinctive linear shape of the Hawaiian-Emperor Chain reflects the progressive movement of the Pacific Plate over a deep immobile hot spot. This hot spot partly melts the region just below the overriding Pacific Plate, producing small, isolated blobs of magma. Less dense than the surrounding solid rock, the magma rises buoyantly through structurally weak zones and ultimately erupts as lava onto the ocean floor to form volcanoes.”
