This graph is a representation of the age of Hawaiian islands and outer seamounts simplified data set. This graph shows a nearly linear relationship between distance and age in volcanoes and seamounts within the Hawaiian ? Emperor chain. The trend line in the graph indicates this relationship and exemplifies that as you move further from Kilauea the islands and seamounts increase in age.
