How do volcanoes form?
Convergent Boundaries Molten rock that erupts onto Earth’s surface
is called lava Divergent Boundaries Hot spots
Volcanoes that are not associated with plate boundaries are called hot spots
Where do volcanoes form? Volcanoes in the United States
Types of Volcanoes
Shield volcanoes Common along divergent plate boundaries
and hot spots. Are large with gentle slopes Composite volcanoes
Large, steep-sided volcanoes that result from explosive eruptions
Cinder volcanoes Small, steep-sided volcanoes
