[Harold T Stearns; Gordon A Macdonald; Hawaii. Division of Hydrography.]. Geological origins A hotspot beneath the Pacific Plate created Hawaii's volcanic islands. As this hotspot has remained stationary over the last 40 million years, the plate above has drifted west-northwest at a rate of three and a half inches per year. Over time, the hotspot resulted in 82 volcanoes emerging to form the Hawaiian Ridge.
