Maple Grove, MN -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/21/2015 -- The website gives readers a platform to gain abundant information on various land forms and features such as cliffs, bays, canyons, deserts, continents and coasts, etc. Volcanoes are openings on the surface of the earth that occur due to the eruption of magma, ashes and minerals. It also occurs when tectonic plates diverge and converge. The various kinds of volcanoes that can be found on the earth are shield volcanoes, spatter cones, composite volcanoes, complex volcanoes and cinder cones.

Volcanoes are an interesting feature on this planet. The whole process of formation and eruption of this natural feature has many facts. Out the many, a composite volcano, which is also known as strato-volcano, is one of the volcanoes which can found along the Pacific Rim. The region is also known as the "rim of fire" because of continuous eruptions. The name strato-volcano is due to formation in a layered structure. This kind of volcano takes place over multiple eruptions over a long time, sometimes a thousand years. It is tall and is shaped in a conical form which lets the lava escape from the rupture and flow downward.

Talking more about volcanoes, one of the representatives of World Land Forms stated, "A lot of volcanoes are in the form of a mountain or a hill that have a crater from past eruptions. Many times, before an eruption, there is activity in the Earth's surface that makes the ground shake or even the crater in the volcano grow. Scientists are getting better at predicting eruptions. This can save many lives."
