Last week: Mauna Loa, Hawaii. By volume, Mauna Loa is the largest volcano in the world. Various web sites give the volume of its lava flows as anywhere from 40,000 to 75,000 km3. Most of the mountain is below sea level, but if one measures from the base to the summit, there is a total relief of over 9000 meters (29500 feet), making it the tallest mountain in the world when measured from the base to the summit.
I’ll move on from the volcanoes theme, and look at interesting coastlines for the month of October. Here’s an easy one. What country is this feature in, and what is the name of the body of water it is found in?
Grace and Peace
