  4. 4. Volcanic Environments 3 4 1 2Composite cone (stratovolcano)volcano found at a destructivemargin where an oceanic plate issubducted beneath a continentalplate. Because the lava is acidicand viscous (thick), eruptionsare violent. C
  5. 5. Volcanic Environments 3 4 1 2 Shield volcano formed at a hotspot in the earth’s crust. Lava is basic and runny. Eruption is non-violent.D
