Slide2:

A volcano can not only bring destruction but it also can create new landforms on our continents . Some of these landforms created by volcanoes are:   Shield volcano – It has gentle upper slopes. Lower slopes are somewhat steeper. http://worldlandforms.com

Slide3:

Stratovolcanoes – Called also as composite volcanoes. Slopes are steeper than those of Shield volcanoes. Cinder Cones – Also known as Tephra cones. They are resulted due to strombolian eruptions. Maars – It forms because of phreatomagmatic or phreatic activity. A lake is also created in many cases. Volcanic Domes – It is also named as Lava Domes. These domes are extremely dangerous. http://worldlandforms.com

Slide4:

Calderas and Craters – They are circular or elliptical depressions. It forms due to collapse of volcanic structure. Resurgent Domes –Magma reinserted below caldera results in resurgent dome formation. These are volcanic eruption prone areas. Hot Springs, Fumaroles and Geysers – Gases and other substances emerge through Fumaroles (vents) to Earth’s surface. Hot water comes up via thermal springs. Geysers are hot springs with plumbing system allowing steam accumulation. Flood Basalts – Basaltic magma comes out through vents and then spreads forming plateaus. They are also told as Plateau Basalts. http://worldlandforms.com
