This web page uses photographs and illustrations of Kilauea Volcano, Hawaii, to illustrate the typical growth and collapse of lava deltas, fan-shaped platforms formed when pahoehoe lava enters the ocean for extended periods of time. The page also discusses the hazards associated with active lava deltas. Full description.

In this lesson covers the evolution of a volcanic island from origin to erosion. Students will be able to determine the relative ages of the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands, given their position in the archipelago and why these islands are so much smaller than the main islands of the Hawaiian chain. They will discover that volcanic islands form over a hot spot on the ocean floor and that islands form ... Full description.

This interactive site uses illustrations and photographs along with text to explain the movement of tectonic plates and the result of this movement on the surface of the Earth. There is a detailed discussion of the movement at each of the four types of plate boundaries: divergent, convergent, transform, and plate boundary zones. Both lateral and vertical movements are depicted by maps and diagrams ... Full description.
