it has mafic and felsic duhhhhh
There are four main types of volcanoes. These include shield volcanoes, cinder cones, composite volcanoes, and lava domes.
Composite VolcanoesComposite Volcanoes. Composite volcanoes are tall, cone shaped mountains in which alternate layers of lava alternate with layers of ash. This happens when smooth lava flows alternate with explosive eruptions of lava fragments.
Shield volcanoes Cinder cone volcanoes Composite volcanoes Lava plateaus
composite and sheild volcanoes are both formed by lava flows and their hights are in the thousands.
They are called composite volcanoes because they are composed of a variety of materials including lava flows, ash, and pumice.
Composite volcanoes usually do not erupt mafic material. Intermediate material is the most common. The mafic material they do erupt is usually basalt.
Shield Volcanoes are made out of running lava. Not composite.
No. Composite volcanoes erupt mostly ash and pumice.
Aa and pahoehoe lavas are both basaltic in composition. The lava from composite volcanoes is likely to be granitic.
Cinder-Cone Volcanoes and Composite Volcanoes
Composite volcanoes can contain a wide variety of magma ranging from basaltic to rhyolitic. Andesitic magma is the most common type in composite volcanoes.
Composite volcanoes form from both explosive eruptions and phyroclastic material and quieter flows of lava.
Compared with the lava in composite volcanoes, hawaiian lava has a slow silica content, is runny, and erupts at a higher temperature.
Composite volcanoes are found on destructive plate margins , where the oceanic crust sinks beneath the continental crust. Composite volcanoes have the following characteristics: Acidic lava, which is very viscous (sticky). Steep sides as the lava doesn't flow very far before it solidifies
Composite volcanoes, also called strato volcanoes, are cone shapes formed by alternating layers of lava and rock fragments. This is the reason they are called composite.
Composite volcanoes can erupt both mafic and felsic material, but intermediate material is the most common.
Most composite volcanoes are comprised of Andesitic lava. Andesetic lava has an intermediate silica content compared to granitic with a high silica content and basaltic with a low silica content.
The ash and cinders erupted can bury entire villages and kill many people. The lava from composite volcanoes generally does not kill people because most lava from composite volcanoes is highly viscous lava moves slowly enough for people to move out of the way of the lava flow. However, it does destroy crops and the force of the lava can knock entire buildings down.
Lava Plateaus Cinder Cone, Composite, Strato, and Shield volcanoes.
Shield volcanoes generally erupt basaltic lava.
I only know four they are shield volcanoes, composite volcanoes, and lava plateaus thats all I know
