  2. Volcanic Environments 3 4 1 2 Submarine volcano erupting under the ocean at the Mid Atlantic ridge, a tensional (divergent) plate margin. A

  3. Volcanic Environments 3 4 1 2 Composite cone volcano forming part of an island arc at a compressional margin where two oceanic plates meet and one is subducted under the other. B

  4. Volcanic Environments 3 4 1 2 Composite (stratovolcano) volcano found at a compressional margin where an oceanic plate is subducted beneath a continental plate. Lava is acidic and viscous. C

  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

  6. Volcanic Environments Match up the volcano with it’s location 3 4 1 5 2 Caldera formed by collapse of magma chamber. Crater Lake is an example. Super volcanoes are very large calderas. E Source images wikipedia / USGS
