Dana theorized that the volcanic chain consisted of two volcanic strands, dubbed the "Loa" and "Kea" trends. The Kea trend included Kalauea, Mauna Kea, Kohala, Haleakala, and West Maui. The Loa trend includes Lihi, Mauna Loa, Huallai, Kahoolawe, Lanai, and West Molokai." â" Wiki.pedia. Includes papers by George Kunz and on meteorites. [With: On the Summit Crater of Mt.
