Many of the taller composite volcanoes and those located in cooler climates are snow-capped. However, others are not so tall and located in tropical regions and so do not have snow caps. On example is Mount Pinatubo in the Philippines.

They are called composite volcanoes because they are composed of a variety of materials including lava flows, ash, and pumice.

Composite volcanoes have low viscosity magma. BTW go to grammar lessons. It's do composite volcanoes...

Multiple eruptions form composite volcanoes. Andesite magma is the most common type of magma that erupts from composite volcanoes. Composite volcanoes can grow so high that their slopes become unstable and collapse.

When a snow-capped volcano erupts the heat produced can melt the snow. This can then mix with ash and form deadly mudflows called lahars. Deadly lahars can occur even with small eruptions.

The colors of composite volcanoes are brown dark brown etc

composite volcanoes and shield volcanoes

composite and sheild volcanoes are both formed by lava flows and their hights are in the thousands.

There are three types of volcanoes, shield volcanoes, composite volcanoes, and cinder cone volcanoes. Composite volcanoes contain the highest viscosity making them the most explosive volcanoes.

Yes. Composite volcanoes often produce violent eruptions.

Ash and Gas make composite volcanoes erupt i believe

Composite volcanoes are usually found near subduction zones.

Composite volcanoes can contain a wide variety of magma ranging from basaltic to rhyolitic. Andesitic magma is the most common type in composite volcanoes.

yes Strato volcanoes are composite

Composite volcanoes, also called strato volcanoes, are cone shapes formed by alternating layers of lava and rock fragments. This is the reason they are called composite.

No. Composite volcanoes erupt mostly ash and pumice.
