The volcanoes of the chain have been erupted onto the seafloor with no regard for the age or constitution of the underlying ocean crust. The Hawaiian volcanic ridge is surrounded by way of a symmetrical melancholy, the Hawaiian Deep, up to 0.7 km deeper than the adjoining seafloor. The Hawaiian Deep is in flip surrounded by means of the vast Hawaiian Arch. Clague and Dalrymple (1987) evaluate the environment and age family of the volcanoes that include the chain.
