Hawaii, Big Island, Oahu, Kauai

Hawaii is proof positive that the plates our continents and islands form on are moving around on a sea of the mantle; as the crust’s layers move, hotspots from the Earth push up over millions of years, making the formation of a chain of islands in a vast ocean. Because these islands are so young, any fossils from more than five million or so years on these islands were brought here from elsewhere- Hawaii simply did not exist when the dinosaurs roamed the earth.  Of the chain, Kauai is the oldest at five million years, others are less than one million, and new islands continue growing!
