Strato volcanoes are vocanoes with pointy tips.

Is a strato volcano active?

Strato Volcanoes contain Andesite magma... i think.

Composite or Strato Volcanoes.

yes Strato volcanoes are composite

They are the same thing, just a little different in shape

Composite volcanoes are also called stratovolcanoes because they are composed of layers. The root strato- means layer.

Mt Unzen is a cluster of several strato volcanoes.

cinder cone volcano, strato volcano, and composite volcano

Strato volcanoes and shield volcanoes are different because of their shape and also because of the may they erupt. Strato volcanoes have steep slopes, shaped like a tall narrow cone.. when a strato volcano erupts vast amounts of gasses such as sulphur dioxide, water and dust are thrown up into the atmosphere. This can cause global warming and pretty sunsets, magma obviously comes out too ( the magma in strato volcanoes is very thick ) . These eruptions are very violent, they can blow up to half of the volcano away leaving a massive crater in the middle of it. Shield volcanoes have gentle slopes, shaped like a low wide cone ( or a shield -hence the name ) when a strato volcano erupts lava fountains can form as hot liquid lava is thrown into the air but these are not usually very high. The lava that comes from shield volcanoes is very runny ( unlike strato volcanoes ) so red hot rivers of lava run down the sides of the volcano. i hope that answered your question. :)

Lava domes/shield volcanoes, ash and cinder cones, and composite cones/strato-volcanoes.

Lava Plateaus Cinder Cone, Composite, Strato, and Shield volcanoes.

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.

8,000 feet Where did you get this figure from? In actual fact "composite" or more correctly "strato-volcanoes" can attain far higher. The volcano "El Teide" on Tenerife rises to almost 4,000 metres (12,200 feet) above sea level, and is the 3rd highest volcano on a volcanic ocean island after Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa. Many of the strato-volcanoes in the Andes are even higher and Popocatapetl in Mexico is one of the world's highest strato-volcanoes.

In volcanoes, the type of eruption generally does not vary in the same volcano. It is generally the type of volcano that determines it's deadliness. The deadliest volcanoes have been strato-volcanoes, which can spew lava, cause landslide, make huge smoke plumes, and emit deadly gasses. Mt. Vesuvius, Mt. Krakatoa, and Mt. St. Helens were all strato-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.
