"When rock from the mantle melts, move to the surface through the crust, and releases pent-up gases, volcanoes erupt". https : // www. csum /.edu/.../ volcano 2.ht". Three types of volcanoes are cinder cone volcano, shield volcano, and composite volcano. Cinder cones are the most common type of volcano their is. Cinder cone volcanoes are somewhat small and about 300 feet tall. Composite volcanoes are built by ash, lava, and unmelted stone. They are 8,000 feet tall. They erupt with great violence and pop like a shaken soda can. These are the deadliest types of volcanoes for example MT saint Helens. It destroyed the forest and killed 57 people. Also ash fell over 11 states. Sheild volcanoes are huge with lava slowly oozing out. The biggest shield volcano is Mauna Loa in Hawaii. It measures 55,770 feet below sea level and 13,681 feet above sea level. It is also the worlds largest volcano and the most active.
