My wife and I were in Kaua`i visiting a friend who is an expert on the geology of the Hawaiian Islands when he said to me: “These islands are a great place to explore geology and see it in action. I know you’re really into dinosaurs; too bad they didn’t live here so you could dig some up and feel more at home.” This comment inspired the question posed in this book: “What do you mean, dinosaurs didn’t live in Hawai`i?” To discover the answer, we’ll take a look at both when and how dinosaurs lived and the history of the development of the Hawaiian Islands. As we do, we’ll uncover some basic concepts of geology that can help us to better understand the world in which we live.
