World landforms, an informative portal, educates readers about the major landforms of the world.
Maple Grove, MN -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/13/2015 -- This educative site enriches learners of the various facts and details regarding the formation of landforms. Archipelago, Coast, Bay, Canyon, Desert, Basin and Cliffs are some of the major geographical features about which one can find information at this website. It took billions of years for these gorgeous landforms to come into existence. Their creation was influenced by many external factors such as wind, erosion, tectonic activities, volcanoes and deposition of land. All these factors together led to the formation of mountains, oceans, valleys and many more.
One of the most interesting geographical features is volcanoes. The whole process of their formation and eruption is quite enthralling. Shield Volcanoes can be seen in places where there are effusive eruptions. In this, the magma flows out in all directions making a shield all around it. As the lava erupts, it flows a long distance compared to other types of volcanoes making thin as well as large lava sheets. With the repetitive compiling of sheets, a low broad profile of the volcano is formed. The website contributes by providing information of landforms lesson plans which is quite helpful for students interested in geology and geography.
Talking about a few of the shield volcano facts, one of the representatives stated, "The magma chamber is located at the base of the volcano and is the reservoir of the magma that flows out during eruptions. Magma conduit is the main pipe that delivers the magma from the magma chamber during eruptions. Dike is a secondary pipe forming on the side of the shield volcano through which magma flows from the magma conduit. Sill is a tubular intrusion in the lava sheets fed by dikes and lie parallel to the lava sheets."
