"Dana was responsible for developing much of the early knowledge on Hawaiian volcanism. In 1880 and 1881 he led the first geological study of the volcanos of Hawaii Island. Dana theorized that the volcanic chain consisted of two volcanic strands, dubbed the "Loa" and "Kea" trends. The Kea trend included Kalauea, Mauna Kea, Kohala, Haleakala, and West Maui. The Loa trend includes Lihi, Mauna Loa, Huallai, Kahoolawe, Lanai, and West Molokai." – Wiki.pedia. Includes papers by George Kunz and on meteorites. [With: On the Summit Crater of Mt.
