In recent studies, eolian sediments were recognized along the lower northwest flank of the volcano. Because these wind-laid sediments record an important component of the late Pleistocene volcanic and climatic history of Mauna Kea, they were revisited in 1990 to investigate their distribution, stratigraphy, chronology, and origin. The results suggest that Mauna Kea has remained within the trade-wind belt since before the last glaciation
