A volcanic cone containing layers of both lava flows and pyroclastic rocks. Synonym for stratovolcano.
A large volcanic cone built by extrusion of ash, lava, and shallow intrusions. Synonymous with stratovolcano.
A volcano composed of pyroclastic layers, lava flows typically of intermediate composition, and mudflows. Composite volcanoes are also called stratovolcanoes.
a volcano built of alternating layers of rock and lava.
A steep volcanic cone built by both lava flows and airborne rocks and ash. Also known as a stratovolcano.
a type of volcano composed of alternating layers of ash and lava
A type of volcano built by the accumulation of materials erupted through the conduit, which increases in size as lava, cinder, and ash are added to its slopes.
a steep sided, usually symmetrical cone
a volcano that has a steep volcanic cone that is built up by dense lava flows and pyroclastic debris
A steep volcanic cone composed of lava fragments as well as other volcanic products. Also called strato-volcano.
a volcano with steep sides made of layers of lava and ash.
A steep volcanic cone built by both lava flows and pyroclastic eruptions.
A steep-sided volcano composed of many layers of volcanic rocks, usually made from high-viscosity (thick like honey) lava, ash and rock debris (broken pieces).
A steep-sided volcano composed of many layers of high-viscosity lava flows and fragmented debris such as lahar and pyroclastic deposits.
a landform made up of layers of lava flows alternating with layers of ash, cinders, and rocks
Relatively large, long-lived constructional volcanic edifice, comprising lava and volcaniclastic products erupted from one or more vents, and their recycled equivalents.
A volcano composed of interbedded lava and pyroclastic material commonly with steep slopes.
Volcano created from alternate layers of flows and exploded rock. Their height ranges from 100 to 3,500 meters tall. The chemistry of the magma of these volcanoes is quite variable ranging from basalt to granite.
