No. The Hawaiian islands are shield volcanoes.

The Hawaiian island volcanoes are shield Volcanoes which have a low viscosity.

The Hawaiian Islands are the "hang loose" chain of shield volcanoes.

The Hawaiian volcanoes can form cinder cones, however the type of volcano they are classified as is shield volcano due to their broad sloping sides and the ability for their lava to flow.No. The Hawaiian islands are shield volcanoes.

All of the active and inactive volcanoes that are part of the Hawaiian-Emperor Seamount chain are shield volcanoes. Shield volcanoes are the result of Hot Spot volcanism which is the type of volcanic force that created the Hawaiian islands.

Shield volcanoes -Hawaiian volcanoes -red lava -usually oozing strait out of science notes...

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 in many places but the most common are the Hawaiian Islands

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 formed the Hawaiian Islands. Shield volcanoes are volcanoes with slightly and smoothly sloped mountain sides from layers of dried lava flow.

The Hawaiian islands were formed by shield volcanoes. However, cinder cones are also present on top of some of them.

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.

They are shield volcanoes. This means that they are cone shaped but with very shallow slope angles forming the volcanoes flank.

Mount Kilauea, in Hawaii. It has been erupting since 1982, and it is a shield volcano.The classic examples of shield volcanoes are the massive volcanoes on the Hawaiian Islands. Specifically Kilauea and Mauna Loa would be great examples of the classic form of a shield volcano.

The Hawiian islands are formed by shield volcanoes.

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

The Hawaiian island volcanoes can be described as shield volcanoes that are fed by a hot spot that is long-lived. The hot spot lies below the Pacific lithospheric plate.

Shield volcanoes are in the shape of a shield. Hence, the name shield volcano! Shield volcanoes are tall and broad with flat rounded shapes. They have low slpes and almost always have large craters. Shield volcanoes form from eruptions of flowing lava. THe lava spreads out and builds up volcanoes with broad, gently, sloping sides. One example of a shield volcano is the Hawaiian Islands.

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.

There are many hundreds of cinder cone volcanoes in the world. Some are in Hawaii but most are not. The Hawaiian islands themselves are shield volcanoes.

The cause of the volcanoes in Hawaii is a Hot Spot on the ocean floor. Magma flows from the Hot Spot and cools forming the Shield volcanoes that make up the Hawaiian islands.
