Most are shield volcanoes.
Not necessarily. Shield volcanoes are volcanoes, but not all volcanoes are shield volcanoes.
Generally not. Although explosive eruptions can happen, most eruptions from shield volcanoes are effusive.
The Hawaiian islands are made of two types of volcanoes, shield volcanoes and cinder cone volcanoes. Shield volcanoes have broad bases with gentle slopes. Cinder cone volcanoes have steeper sides, are made from fragments of lava, and are usually located at the base of shield volcanoes.
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.
shield volcanoes are in many places but the most common are the Hawaiian Islands
along subduction-related arcs
Most shield volcanoes are made of thousands of thin basalt lava.
There are three types of volcanoes, shield volcanoes, composite volcanoes, and cinder cone volcanoes. Composite volcanoes contain the highest viscosity making them the most explosive volcanoes.
Yes, all volcanoes erupt, but shield volcanoes don't have explosive eruptions.
