Scientists divide volcanoes into three categories - extinct (considered as no threat to erupt again), dormant (inactive, but subject to possible future eruptions) and active (currently or recently erupting). The volcanoes that formed the islands of Kauai and Oahu are classified as extinct; Haleakala on Maui is classified as dormant; and, Mauna Kea on the Big Island has been in a constant state of eruption since the early 1980s.
