Maple Grove, MN -- (ReleaseWire) -- 04/28/2015 -- Due to various geographical changes, the earth has evolved to be what people see it as today. These gorgeous landforms are formed due to a series of changes that happen over millions of years. With the erosion of soil, wind, tectonic activities and deposition of land in various places, different kinds of landforms have formed over time. Out of the many geographical features that formed in the process, volcanoes are the most interesting. Therefore, World landforms, an educative online portal, provides composite volcanoes information. They are also known as strato volcanoes because of their layered structure or composite strata. It forms due to the material that erupts through the earth's crust.

Talking more about composite volcanoes, one of the representatives of World landforms stated, "These volcano formations take place over a number of eruptions for several thousand years. These volcanoes are tall and conical in shape and are formed when hot lava escapes through the ruptures or fissures and flows a long way. Andesite magma generally forms the composite cones. The main characteristics of the composite volcanoes are periodic and quiet explosions."

These kinds of volcanoes can usually be found along the chain of the Pacific Rim which is the reason it is called the rim of fire. Broadly, there are five types of volcanoes including complex volcanoes, shield volcanoes, composite volcanoes, spatter cones, shield volcanoes and cinder volcanoes. Besides these, the online portal provides knowledge about various kinds of landforms such as valleys, waterfalls, oceans, continents, deserts, cliffs, forests, gulfs, basin reefs, mountains and much more. With the help of this information, people can gather knowledge about different kinds of landforms and procedures surrounding their formation, etc.
