Hawaii – The Pace of Formation

The Kilauea Volcano‘s continued flow of lava into the ocean is one of the few places in the world to provide a front row seat of an island’s formation. The Big Island is literally changing before your eyes. This vast island contains 8 out of 13 different climate zones in the world, each with unique ecosystems, making the Big Island one of the most ecologically diverse places in the world. To showcase its diversity, we wanted to slow things down and let its beauty speak for itself.

Filmed by Matt Givot, Aaron Mendez, Brian Hawkins, and Chaz Curry, this is Hawaii – The Pace of Formation.

Next: Kilauea – The Fire Within and Living with Lava, when a volcano erupts underwater, Kawah Ijen volcano & The Mystery of the Blue Flames, and more lava.
