Maple Grove, MN -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/19/2015 -- Over billions of years, different geographical features have formed due to tectonic activities, climatic changes and soil erosion. Aseismic Ridges, Basins, Barchans, Beach Ridges, Mountain ranges, Oceans, Rift Valleys, Swamps and many other landforms came into existence due to these tremendous changes on the earth's surface. Out of all of these, volcanoes are one of the most interesting natural features. Readers and scholars interested in environmental studies can gather information about volcanoes from World Landforms. There are five types of volcanoes, namely – composite volcanoes, complex volcanoes, shield volcanoes, spatter cones and cinder cones.
Volcanic eruption takes place when the convergence and divergence of hot magma and gases try to escape from the core. In the process, it ruptures the planet's crust and erupts out. Each of the volcanoes is classified by their shape to make it simple to understand and study their individual features. The portal has also provided different images and ample information in simple language to help readers understand the information. Besides volcanoes, the portal also provides information about landforms.
Speaking more about volcanoes, one of the representatives of World Landforms stated, "Volcanoes can be devastating. They can destroy land in many different ways. One example is the submarine caldera called Kuwae. A huge island that was once connected is now two. A huge eruption collapsed the land in the middle. The collapse associated with caldera formation may have been as much as 1,100 meters. Around 32–39 cubic km of magma was erupted, making the Kuwae eruption one of the largest in the past 10,000 years."
