Hawaii Volcanoes National Park  -
Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, established in 1916, is a United States national park that is situated in the U.S. State of Hawaii on the island of Hawaii. It displays the results of hundreds of thousands of years of volcanism, migration, and evolution—processes that thrust a bare land from the sea and clothed it with complex and unique ecosystems and a distinct Ancient Hawaiian culture. Kilauea, one of the world's most active volcanoes, and Mauna Loa, the most massive, offer scientists insights on the birth of the Hawaiian Islands and visitors' views of dramatic volcanic landscapes.
10
Hawaiian Volcano Observatory  - Kilauea,
The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory is a volcano observatory located at Uwekahuna Bluff on the rim of Kilauea Caldera on the Island of Hawaii. The observatory monitors four active Hawaiian volcanoes: Kilauea, Mauna Loa, Hualalai, and Haleakala. Because Kilauea and Mauna Loa are significantly more active than Hualalai and Haleakala, much of the observatory's research is concentrated on the former two mountains.
