O‘ahu is the third largest Hawaiian island with 180 km of general coastline that contours a highly irregular shape that was greatly influenced by two massive landslides, that removed ~1/3 of the northeastern portion of the island and aproximately 1/2 of the western side . Today, the shape of O‘ahu is constrained by two great mountain ranges that are the eroded remnants of two separate shields truncated by the prodigious slides.
