You can practically see them in Hawaii, the Galapagos, Iceland, and some areas of the East African Rift.

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


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.


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.


No, they're shield volcanoes. The lava in spatter cones is highly viscous whereas the lava that forms shield volcanoes (that you can see flowing in Hawaii) has a very low viscosity. Shield volcanoes are low profile, broad lumps; these are the Hawaiian islands.


Shield volcanoes generally erupt basaltic lava.


Shield volcanoes are usually fed by basaltic magma.


composite volcanoes and shield volcanoes


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.


A hazard from shield volcanoes is burning of trees, homes, etc.


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.


Shield volcanoes are very wide and have sloping sides. This is so because runny lava comes from these volcanoes.


Composite volcanoes can have quiet eruptions (runny lava), and shield volcanoes always have quiet eruptions.


Shield volcanoes are not hot spots but they are associated with them. However, such volcanoes can also form at rift zones.
