It is formed from thin layers of lava after consistent low-grade eruptions. The largest volcano in the world is a shield volcano. It is located in Hawaii.”
“The interesting fact about shield volcanoes is that they are formed when there are effusive volcanic eruptions with magma flowing out in all directions to form a shield-like form. They are built of weak viscous basaltic lava. The effusive eruptions allow lava to flow longer distances than other types of volcanic eruptions, making larger and thinner sheets of lava. The continuous build up of these sheets over a long period of time construct a low broad profile of the shield volcano. The types of eruptions at shield volcanoes are known as Hawaiian, after the Hawaiian chain where they prominently occur,” he added.
