The elongated Waianae shield volcano forms much of western Oahu Island. The Waianae Slump, a landslide formed during multiple events, extends 90 km SW (Moore et al. 1989). The heavily eroded volcano was largely formed during the Pliocene, but late-stage Kolekole volcanics at the SE end of the range are considered to be of Pleistocene age (Langenheim and Plague 1987).
