What are the kinds of cone volcanoes?

There are three kinds of cone volcanoes shield cones, composite cones, and cinder cones. Shield cones have very fluid lava. They erupt with a quiet lava flow. An example of a shield cone volcano is Mauna Loa. A shield cone is pretty much a little dome that has been flattened. Composite cones have sticky lava and rock bits. They have the most explosive eruptions An example of a composite cone volcano is Vesuvius. Composite cones are steep at the top but gentle at the bottom. Cinder cones have cinders. They have explosive eruptions An example is Paricutin. A cinder cone is very steep.

List the three types of volcanoes and how they are formed?

Ash and Cinder cones: Built up on successive layer of ash and cinder. Shield Cones: Made mainly from basic lava and as such they have a gently sloping mountain. Composite cones: Built up on layer of ash , cinder and lava.

What is the most common volcano?

The most common volcano is the cinder cone volcano. Unlike shield volcanoes and stratovolcanoes, many cinder cones are monogenetic, meaning they form from a single, relatively short period of activity and then never erupt again.

Why are cinder cones smaller than 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

Where can you find cinder cones?

Cinder cones are usually found on the sides of shield volcanoes, calderas, and stratovolcanoes. Many cinder cones can be found in Hawaii on the volcano of Mauna Kea. The most active cinder cone is found in Nicaragua. It is named Cerro Negro, and according to geologists and scientist has erupted around 20 times since 1850.

Are cinder cones usually found at the edge of large volcanoes?

Yes, although technically, strato-volcanoes *are* cinder cones (composite cones), built up of layers of ash. But the term "cinder cones" (ash cones) is usually applied to smaller cones that form within the vicinity of large volcanic calderas, such as Crater Lake in Oregon. They may be associated with either strato-volcanoes or shield volcanoes.

How are volcanic cones classified?

There are three types of volcanos, shield, cinder, and composite volcanos. Cinder volcanos are the smallest, while shield volcanos are the largest. Composite volcanos are the most dangerous and the most explosive.
