Data from the Global Volcanism Program of the Smithsonian Institution
Details for: Haleakala
The summit of Haleakala shield volcano, on the island of Maui, is cut by a massive, 9.5 x 3.5 km wide crater. The "crater" is not of volcanic origin, but was formed by coalescing headward erosion of two large valleys. This view to the NE from near the summit of Haleakala shows the Koolau Gap in the distance and a line of cinder cones on the crater floor erupted along a major rift zone that extends across the summit from the SW to eastern coasts.
