The volcanoes Mauna Loa and Kilauea

Mauna Loa and Kilauea are volcanoes located in the southernmost part of Hawaii. They are part of the national Hawaiian Volcano Park. Mauna Loa and Kilauea are very active 600,000-year-old volcanoes and are therefore under constant surveillance.

Mauna Loa is the largest shield volcano in the world with a length of 100 km and a width of 50 km. Kilauea has been erupting over the last decades and lava flows down its steep slopes from the top. Their movement is not faster than a moderate human move, so they rarely cause damage. A scary but interesting sight is.
