East Molokai volcano was constructed along an E-W trending rift zone. The northern half of the volcano is truncated by a cliff more than 1 km high resulting from the massive Wailau debris avalanche that extended more than 100 km N (Moore et al. 1989). The youngest eruptive products formed the small Kalaupapa shield volcano that created a peninsula off the north coast between about 0.57 and 0.35 million years ago (Langenheim and Plague 1987).
