  • 6. Shield Volcano
    • Occur at Constructive Plate Boundaries.
    • Runny Lava that flows along way from the main vent.
    • Gives the volcano gentle sides.
    • Shield volcanoes almost never erupt violently due to the lava running free (no rocks).
  • 7. Composite Volcanoes.
    • Occur at destructive plate boundaries.
    • Viscous (thick lava)
    • The lava cannot flow far from the vent.
    • Makes the volcano steep sided.
    • Violent eruptions due to rapidly hardening rock which blocks vents and allows the pressure to build.
