  1. Volcanoes By : Cierra Ingram

  2. Types of Volcanoes

  3. Cinder Cone Volcano These are the classic cone-shaped peaks we commonly associate with a lava spewing eruption. Eruption from Cinder cones are pretty small potatoes as far as volcanic eruption go.They tend to be small hill-sized volcanes that range in height from tens to hundred of meters high and they can build up over short periods of time of a few months to a few years.

  4. Shield Cone Volcano Shelid volcanoes are volcanoes with broad gentle slopes and built by the eruption of fluid basalt lava (lava flows of low viscosity)Lava flows out of volcanoes in all direction from a central summit vent or group of vents buildind a broad gently sloping cone of flat domical shape with a profile much like that a warriors sheild.The largest volcanoes on earth are sheild volcanoes and one of the largest known volcanoes in our solor system is olympusmon on mars is a sheild volcano.

  5. Composite Volcanoes Composite volcanoes sometimes are stratovolcanoes are typically deep-sided symmetrical cones of large dimension built of alternating layers of lava flows volcanic ash, cinders,blocks,and bombs and may ris as much as 8,000 ft above their bases.Composite volcanoes can erupt vilintly.

  6. Facts about volcanoes Volcanoes provide humans with minerals from deep within earths crust. The minerals the volcanoes bring up are diamonds, gold and sliver. Most volcanoes are located in the RING OF FIRE surrounding Asia. The pacific RING OF FIRE. There are about 130 volcanoes in Alaska there are 5 in Hawii. Volcanos create 80 percant of earths surfaces. Volcanoes create rich soil for farming.
