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

Some well known Shield Volcanoes are Mauna Loa, Kilauea, and Mauna Kea.

Shield volcanoes is called shield volcanoes because of the base, the base is wide and it's like a warrior shield so that's why it's called shield volcano.

Because shield volcanoes have lava flows rather than explosive eruptions, they are much quieter than other types of volcanoes. Regardless, shield volcanoes are among some of the largest in the world.

they say there are some in hawaii

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

Because if you look at them from above, they look like a warrior's shield.

I have been doing some research on volcanoes. Scientists have not made another name for shield volcanoes yet. I can not believe it. They have them for cinder cone, and composite volcanoes.

No. Compared to composite and cinder cone volcanoes, shield volcanoes are very short. Mauna Loa in Hawaii is a shield volcano.

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.

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

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 generally erupt basaltic lava.

Shield volcanoes are usually fed by basaltic magma.

composite volcanoes and shield volcanoes

A shield volcano contains basaltic magma, which contains pyroxenes and some olivine.

There are cone and shield volcanoes.

No. There are no volcanoes on Mercury.

Both shield and cinder cone volcanoes primarily erupt basaltic lava.

Yes. Shield volcanoes are large volcanoes with broad, shallows slopes composed of many layers of basaltic lava flows. The Hawaiian islands are made up of shield volcanoes.

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

No. Shield volcanoes are quite large. Cinder cones are the smallest volcanoes.

Basaltic/mafic lava creates shield volcanoes.

Shield volcanoes erupt mafic lava.

No. Shield volcanoes are fed by low-viscosity basaltic magma.
