No. Many shield volcanoes produces pahoehoe.
Not always. Shield volcanoes produce basaltic lava, which can form into either pahoehoe or a'a. Sometimes both are found in the same lava flow.
Pahoehoe lava forms by small pieces of lava from an irregular flow. It is typical in certain types of volcanoes such as shield volcanoes.
composite volcanoes and shield volcanoes
Pahoehoe and a'a are textural variaties of basaltic lava, which has a low viscosity, meaning it flows fairly easily. This is the reason for the gentle slopes of shield volcanoes.
. Shield Volcanoes, Cinder Cone volcanoes, and Composite Volcanoes .
Shield Volcanoes - Wide base found at constructive plate margins Composite Volcanoes - Steeper Sides found at Destructive (subduction) margins
Shield Volcanoes erupt less violently and flows further then composite volcanoes. A composite volcano erupts more violently.
Stratovolcanoes are composite volcanoes.
Both shield and cinder cone volcanoes primarily erupt basaltic lava.
composite and sheild volcanoes are both formed by lava flows and their hights are in the thousands.
No. Compared to composite and cinder cone volcanoes, shield volcanoes are very short. Mauna Loa in Hawaii is a shield volcano.
