volcano constructed of multiple layers of lava and tephra
A cone-shaped volcano built from alternating layers of pyroclastics and viscous andesitic lava. Stratovolcanos tend to be very large and steep.
A steep-sided volcano built up of ash, lava flows, and shallow intrusions. Synonymous with composite volcano.
(also called a stratocone or composite cone). A steep-sided volcano, usually conical in shape, built of lava flows and fragmental deposits from explosive eruptions.
A steep volcanic cone built by both lava flows and airborne rocks and ash. Also known as a composite volcano.
a steep-sided volcano that is composed of alternating layers of lava and pyroclastic deposits.
A volcano that is constructed of alternating layers of lava and pyroclastic deposits, along with intrusions of magma.
a type of volcano made of lava and tephra
Volcano composed of alternating lava flows, layers of pyroclastic material, and debris flow deposits piled up around a central vent. Stratovolcanoes are typically 10 to 30 km (6 to 20 mi) in diameter, and have slopes that steepen gradually upwards towards their summits.
A volcano composed of both lava flows and pyroclastic material.
A relatively long-lived volcano built up of both lava flows and pyroclastic material.
A volcanic cone made up of alternating layers of lava flows and pyroclastics.
a volcano built up of layers both of ash and of lava, reflecting a history of both violent and more gentle eruptions. It generally looks steeper toward the top.
A steep-sided volcano built by lava flows and tephra deposits. (Also called composite volcano.)
A large, steep-sided, symmetrical cone built of alternating layers (strata) of lava, ash, cinders, blocks, and bombs. Also called composite volcano, these stratovolcanoes form some of Earth's grandest mountains rising as much as 8,000 feet above their bases ( movie). of document

A stratovolcano is a composite volcano.
A volcano with a composite cone, formed by layers of lava and pyroclastics. Most large continental volcanoes are this type. Examples include Mt. Rainier and Mt. St. Helens.
A stratovolcano is a tall, conical volcano composed of many layers of hardened lava, tephra, and volcanic ash. These volcanoes are characterised by a steep profile and periodic, explosive eruptions. The lava that flows from them is highly viscous, and cools and hardens before spreading very far.
