Yes, because a shield volcano is much closer to the ground then the other two types of volcanoes.

Yes, all volcanoes erupt, but shield volcanoes don't have explosive eruptions.

because they are volcanoes, all volcanoes erupt

Shield volcanoes generally erupt basaltic lava.

Shield volcanoes erupt mafic lava.

Both shield and cinder cone volcanoes primarily erupt basaltic lava.

Shield volcanoes erupt least violently cinder cone most violently and compost can erupt either way.

Shield volcanoes, are not particularly dangerous. Though shield volcanoes erupt very often, they normally don't pose danger as significant as other types of volcanoes.

Quiet volcanoes can be either dormant or extinct. An extinct volcano, as you may have guessed, has not erupted for a very long period of time and will not erupt in the future. A dormant volcano, however, is just sleeping. You probably get up all groggy after a good sleep.If you mean volcanoes that erupt quietly, as in not explosively, then those are generally shield volcanoes.

Pyroclastic flows don't come from shield volcanoes. They come from cinder cone and sometimes composite volcanoes. Shield volcanoes only erupt runny lava.

Shield volcanoes erupt runny lava, which doesn't easily build up (gentle slopes).

Yes. Shield volcanoes erupt basaltic lava, which is runny.

This is because of the time of volcano it is and the type of lava it excretes. A steep volcano will erupt with basaltic lava which is runny and can clog at the top. A shield volcano, however is different as the thick lava emitted just glops onward.

A volcano erupts quietly if its magma is low in silica. Low-silica magma has low viscosity and flows easily.

Shield volcanoes erupt lava with a low silica content. There are less dissolved gases and a lower viscocity fluid, so less gas is produced and it takes less pressure to erupt.

Both cinder cones and shield volcanoes are volcanoes that primarily erupt basaltic lava and do not produce large explosive eruptions.

Shield Volcanoes erupt less violently and flows further then composite volcanoes. A composite volcano erupts more violently.

Generally shield volcanoes do not explode. They erupt in a non-explosive fashion, fountaining or oozing lava.

Both erupt basaltic lava, which has a low silica content and a high temperature.

Not necessarily. Shield volcanoes are volcanoes, but not all volcanoes are shield volcanoes.

Cinder cone volcanoes are like a small "pop" not like a big erupt. Shield volcanoes are bigger because they make a big explosion of oozing lava. The cinder cones only erupt once and the ash forms a large crater that stacks up

No. Caldera and shield volcanoes are quite different. Shield volcanoes usually undergo effusive eruptions, the least violent type and produce basaltic lava. Caldera forming volcanoes erupt explosively and are the most violent. They generally produce rhyolitic lava.

It depends some volcanoes erupt and then thousands of years past they will erupt again but some volcanoes erupt and will never erupt again and are dead volcanoes

Pahoehoe and a'a are textural variaties of basaltic lava, which has a low viscosity, meaning it flows fairly easily. This is the reason for the gentle slopes of shield volcanoes.

what is the two ways volcanoes erupt
