Not always. Shield volcanoes produce basaltic lava, which can form into either pahoehoe or a'a. Sometimes both are found in the same lava flow.

Pahoehoe lava forms by small pieces of lava from an irregular flow. It is typical in certain types of volcanoes such as shield volcanoes.

No. Many shield volcanoes produces pahoehoe.

Aa and pahoehoe lavas are both basaltic in composition. The lava from composite volcanoes is likely to be granitic.

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.

Shield volcanoes generally erupt basaltic lava.

Pahoehoe does not come from any specific type of volcano. It is just a type of lava that has a smooth, ropey surface. However, it is most often associated with shield volcanoes.

Shield volcanoes erupt mafic lava.

A low amount of silica will create a runny kind of lava found in shield volcanoes. That kind of lava is called Pahoehoe. A high amount of silica will make a thick kind of lava that is found in cinder cone volcanoes. That kind of lava is called Aa.

there is no difference between pahoehoe and lava because pahoehoe is a type of lava there is a difference between pahoehoe lava and AA (ahah) lava

Pahoehoe and a'a refer to different texutres of lava flows. Although cindercones can produce lava flows, their main mode of eruption is called "fire fountaining" which tends to produce chunks of lava called scoria, rather than pahoehoe or a'a.

The difference between Pahoehoe lava and AA lava is that pahoehoe lava is smooth and AA lava is jagged.

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

Pahoehoe is the most common lave for a composite volcano

Shield volcanoes are composed mostly of layers of basaltic lava flows.

Basaltic/mafic lava creates shield volcanoes.

Shield volcanoes Cinder cone volcanoes Composite volcanoes Lava plateaus

Both shield and cinder cone volcanoes primarily erupt basaltic lava.

The Hawaiian volcanoes are shield volcanoes as they are broadly-sloping and composed of layers formed by basaltic lava flows.

Mafic, usually basaltic lava.

Pahoehoe lava comes out of the Kilauea volcano. Hope I helped. But hey, do you know any other volcanoes that spew pahoehoe? Need help on homework. Answer it!

Oozing lava forms flat mounds they are called shield volcanoes.

The shield volcanoes form when lava is very hot and has little gas and silica.

Shield volcanoes produce low-silica lava.

Shield volcanoes are very wide and have sloping sides. This is so because runny lava comes from these volcanoes.

Composite volcanoes can have quiet eruptions (runny lava), and shield volcanoes always have quiet eruptions.
