It's the whole volcano.

a dome volcano is not the same as a cone volcano. a dome volcano is a type of volcano, is a roughly circular mound-shaped protrusion resulting from the slow extrusion of viscous lava from a volcano. Usually it extrudes very slowly, but constantly. A cone volcano has an appearance of an upside-down funnel with a hole in the top which the lava shoots out of.

A Dome volcano is a thick, slow-moving lava that forms a steep-sided dome shape.

Dome volcanoes have a dome shaped top. like in movies when there is a volcano scene and the people look down into the volcano, that part is the dome part.

Dome volcanoes are tall and are not broad where as shield volcanoes are broad and low.

The volcano, Lassen Peak is a round dome volcano.

No. Although Mount St Helens has a lava dome in it, the volcano itself is a stratovolcano.

El Chinchon is not a shield volcano it is a lava dome volcano. Lava dome volcanoes have a layering of lava that fans up and outward in the center.

Acid Lava Dome is a type of volcano that forms when viscous acid lava solidifies quickly to form a volcano with steep convex sides.

The type of volcano does not determine its level of activity. A volcanic dome may be active, dormant, or extinct.

It is a stratovolcano with a lava dome complex in its crater.

Lassen Peak located in Lassen Volcanic National Park, Ca is the largest plug dome volcano in the world.

A lava dome is a dome-shaped structure that is formed when a volcano extrudes extremely viscous lava. Thus it is a dome made of lava.

A dormant volcano or any other of that sort

Mahukona is a shield volcano. Mahukona is submerged. A shield volcano is a volcano that has a dome shaped top and sloping sides.

No. Krakatoa is a stratovolcano.

because it has a dome shape

No. It is a stratovolcano.

I don't know about viscous, but a lava dome is a steep-sided dome of thick lava extruding from a volcanic vent.a viscous lava dome is when the lava from the volcano contains alot of silica. Viscous=sticky. So the lava cools quickly of the sides of the volcano. And often a viscous lava dome volcano is explosive.

A lava dome volcano is also referred to as dome volcano. It forms when lava blocks the vent. The lava cools, then breaks apart, new lava covers the cooled lava (molten rock) which makes a dome shape. The lava involved in these domes is extremely viscous, and so does not readily flow away from the source.
