Shield volcano

Shield Volcano

  • A wide sloping mountain formed by thin layers of lava.


Cinder cone volcanoes

Cinder Cone Volcanoes

  • A volcano that has a cone like shape and is very steep.


Composite volcano

Composite Volcano

  • Are cone shaped mountains which layers of lava and ash alternate it.


Calderas

Calderas

  • A caldera is a huge hole left behind by a volcano that has collapsed.


Volcanic neck

Volcanic Neck

  • Magma that hardens in a volcano’s pipe is called a volcanic neck.


Section 3 3 volcanic landforms

Dike

  • Magma forcing itself across layers of rock hardens into a dike.


Section 3 3 volcanic landforms

Sill

  • A sill forms when magma squeezes between layers of rock.


Batholith

Batholith

  • Large rock masses form the core of many mountain ranges.


Landforms from lava ash

Landforms From Lava & Ash

  • Rock and materials from lava create many landforms including composite volcanoes , cinder cone volcanoes , and lava plateaus.

  • Thin layers of lava pouring out the vent of a volcano hardens on top of each other creating a wide sloping mountain called a shield volcano.


Landforms from lava and ash continued

Landforms From Lava and Ash(continued)

  • If lava from a volcano is thick and stiff can

    produce ash, cinders, and bombs.

  • When these features pile on top of each other they form a steep cone shaped feature called a cinder cone volcano.

  • Alternatively flowing lava erupts ash, cinders, and bombs forming a composite volcano.


Landforms from lava and ash continued1

Landforms From Lava and Ash (continued)

  • Lava not only forms mountains but lava forming a high level area are called lava plateaus.


Landforms from lava and ash continued2

Landforms From Lava and Ash (continued)

  • Enormous eruptions may empty the main vent and magma chamber underneath a volcano leaving a hollow shell. With no support the top of the mountain collapses inward leaving a huge hole called a caldera.


Soils from lava and ash

Soils From Lava and Ash.

  • When the hard surface of lava flow breaks down it forms into soil which is very fertile soil.

  • Volcanic ash breaking down releases potassium, and phosphorus.


Landforms from magma

Landforms From Magma

  • Magma forcing through cracks in the upper crust failing to reach the surface hardens into rock.

  • Water, ice, or wind may strip away the layers of rock above magma and expose it.

  • Volcanic necks look like giant teeth stuck in the ground.


Landforms from magma continued

Landforms From Magma (continued)

  • A batholith is a mass of rock formed by a large body of magma cooling inside the crust.

  • Other bodies of magma create dome mountains. Dome mountains form when rising magma gets blocked by horizontal layers of rock.


I learned

I Learned

  • We learned how calderas form and the damage it can leave behind like big giant holes.

  • We also learned the three different types of volcanoes.

  • Last we learned lava can form land.

Teacher notes

Excellent beginning to your presentation, but it lacked a lot of formatting after

Missing pictures for a lot of your vocabulary

Few spelling and grammatical errors, good job!

More organization of your time was needed to complete this assignment
