Researchers at Brigham Young University report that the Hawaiian Islands are dissolving. In fact, researchers contend that Oahu’s Koolau and Waianae mountains will someday shrink down to nothing more than a flat, low-lying island like Midway.
Although erosion is an issue for the Hawaiian Islands, researchers argue that it isn’t the primary offender. They believe that the mountains of Oahu are almost certainly dissolving from within.
