Volcanic eruption

Describe the Pyroclastic material and magma

What is Pyroclastic material?

Some Pyroclastic material form when magma breaks into fragments of rock that form during an volcanic eruption because of the rapidly expanding gases in the magma. Which is made out of felsic lava that's made of silicon and feldspar that traps more gases it also has more viscous and is light in color.

Lava flows

There are three different types of lavas, they form depending on what happens to the lava as it flows. Which are all mafic lavas that is low in viscosity, is made of magnesium and iron, is dark on color, and traps less gases.

Types of volcanoes

Volcanic activity produces a variety of characteristic features that form during both quiet and explosive eruptions. The lava and Pyroclastic material that are ejected during volcanic eruptions build up around the vent and form volcanic cones, volcanic cones are classified as three main types.
