Repeated lava flows during quiet eruptions build up a broad, gently sloping volcanic mountain .
Cinder Cone Volcano
When cinders erupt explosively from a volcanic vent, they pile up around the vent, forming a cone-shaped hill .
Layers of lava alternate with layers of ash, cinders, and bombs due to both quiet and explosive eruptions.
lava plateau is a flat, wide surface (plateau) that is formed when lava comes out of the ground and spreads out very quickly.
The lava layers form a lava plateau. With each eruption and flow of lava, the plateau grows in size.
volcanic feature usually formed by the collapse of land following a volcanic eruption.
when magma hardens in the pipe and eventually is exposed due to erosion of the volcano.
A near-vertical slab of volcanic rock
formed when magma forces itself across rock layers.
A horizontal slab of volcanic rock formed when magma forces itself across
Mass of rock formed when a large body of magma cools inside the crust
Form when rising magma is
blocked by horizontal layers of rock. The magma forces the layers of rock to bend upward
into a dome shape. Eventually, the rock around the bulges erode.
