Question
Answered step-by-step

Matching - select the best match between the location and the volcanic feature (or the basalt flow source).

NOTE: There are a big pool of these questions, and so the instructions here apply for all of the potential questions.

    You are given geographic coordinates scattered around the Island of Hawai'i. Use Fast Travel in the geovisualization to go to that location.

            If the location is a volcanic feature that is not a lava flow (e.g. caldera made by collapse of a volcano into an emptied magma chamber, crater made by the force of a volcanic eruption (can also be made by collapse when there's no lava or cinder surrounding it), cinder cone made by lava reaching the surface in the form of pieces called cinder and dropping back down in the shape of a cone), then the correct match will be the correct name of the feature and an estimate of the height (e.g. of the cinder cone) or the depth (e.g. of the caldera) using the elevation data you see in the geovisualization.

                If the location is a basalt lava flow, then the best match will be the volcano that is the source of the lava flow. Just follow the lava flow uphill and when you can't see it any more - that's the source. It will be one of the five big shield volcanoes.
