  1. Different types of volcanoes based on magma type are:

    stratovolcanoes, shield, fissure vents, spatter cones and calderas

  2. Lava domes are built up when the lava is too viscous to flow, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. A bubble or plug of cooling rock forms over a fissure. This cooler, thick lava usually rises near the end of an explosive eruption and lava domes often form within the craters of stratovolcanoes. Mount St.


  3. The Three Volcanoes that are classified as cone shape is Shield Volcanoes are large volcanoes that are built almost entirely of fluid lava flows. Cinder Cone volcanoes are the most common kind od volcanoes. They are steep sided cones of basaltic fragments.Composite Volcanoes from when runny lava escapes through a dissure and dlows a long way.

  4. There are mainly 4 types of volcanoes.


    1. Cinder cones: They are a bowl-shaped crater,  build from particle or blobs of congealed lava that is ejected from a single gas vent, as the air is broken into small fragments that are solidified and falls as cinders.

    2. Composite volcanoes: stratovolcano or composite cone are those that form a steep-sided, symmetrical cone of large dimensions built around by lavas. Some examples are Mount Shasta in California, Mount Hood in Oregon.

    3. Lava domes: There internal structure is defined by bulbous masses of lava, that are too vicious.

    4. Shield volcanoes: These are built entirely by fluid lava, and flow p[ours in all directions.

    A volcano can change its surrounding weather patterns but not the climate of a place as a climatic zone is composed of stable and static atmosphere like that of poles, tropics, and temperate lands, etc.  

    Not all volcanic eruptions can be predicted successfully as they are also triggered by an earthquake and the active or dominant type of volcano can be identified based on its previous eruption patterns.
