Maple Grove, MN -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/26/2015 -- With the motive to cater to the interest and curiosity of readers and students, World Landforms now provides facts and details about different types of volcano landforms. Volcanoes are geographical features with quite an interesting history of formation and origin. This online portal provides a lot of information, discussing their types, eruptions and various other curious facts which are quite interesting. Basically, there are different types of volcanoes such as shield volcanoes, complex volcanoes, composite volcanoes, spatter cones and cinder cones.
Of all the volcanoes, composite volcanoes are quite compelling. These are also called Strato volcanoes because of their layered structure. The layers are formed because of the deposition of materials that come out during a volcanic eruption. The formation of the volcano takes place due to eruptions over thousands of years. They are big and in the shape of a cone and happen due to the rolling down of hot lava through ruptures or fissures. The conical shape is usually caused due to andesite magma. These kinds of volcanoes are quiet and explode periodically.
Talking more about the composite volcano, one of the representatives of World Landforms stated, "They result from alternating layers of the composite materials like lava volcanic ash. A significant characteristic of the composite volcano is the process through which the magma from inside the earth's surface transits to the top of the land. The volcano is built up by repeated accumulation of materials that erupt through the conduit and also increases in the size of lava and other materials. Normally, volcanoes have craters on their top which contain a central vent or a group of vents."
