HAWAIIAN VOLCANIC AGGREGATES

HAWAII IS A VOLCANIC ISLAND THAT IS STILL IN THE PROCESS OF BEING BUILT UP. RECENT LAVA FLOWS CAN BE OBSERVED SIDE BY SIDE WITH ANCIENT FLOWS AND ALSO ONE ON TOP OF ANOTHER. VARYING CONDITIONS AT TIME OF ERUPTION GIVE RISE TO DIFFERENT TYPES OF ERUPTED MATERIAL SUCH AS LAVA ROCK, CINDERS, ASH, ETC. VARIATIONS IN CLIMATE AND RAINFALL CAUSE DIFFERENCES IN WEATHERING AND SOIL FORMATION. VARIOUS TYPES OF VOLVANIC MATERIAL FOUND IN HAWAII AND THEIR USE AS AGGREGATES AND MATERIAL FOR HIGHWAY BUILDING ARE DESCRIBED. /AUTHOR/
