• These guys here say it's Mauna Loa (Hawaii). Interesting. "According to this analysis, which was done in conjunction with colleagues at the U.S. Geological Survey, the mountain comprises from 68,750 to 79,343 cubic kilometers, or 16,494 to 19,035 cubic miles. Of this, just a tiny portion extends above sea level. In the past, researchers believed the mountain had a volume of between 60,000 and 80,000 cubic kilometers, but the more detailed measurements in this study were made with the powerful tools of geographic information systems. The true volume of Mauna Loa is staggering when compared to other large mountains or volcanoes, experts say. For instance, it would take about 375 mountains the size of Mount Hood in Oregon, itself an 11,235-foot volcanic peak, to equal this gigantic volcano on the Big Island."
