Composite Volcanoes
Shield Volcanoes
A composite volcano, also known as a stratovolcano, is a cone shaped volcano built up by many layers of hardened lava.
Shield volcanoes are large volcanoes that are made almost entirely of fluid lava flows. It has it's name because it looks like a warrior's shield on the ground.
Alcedo Volcano is one of the six
shield
volcanoes that make up Isabela Island in the Galapagos. The remote location of the volcano has meant that even the most recent eruption in 1993 was not recorded until two years later.

Mount St. Helens erupted on May 18, 1980, at 8:32 a.m. Fifty-seven people were killed. 250 homes, 47 bridges, 24 kilometers of railways, and 298 kilometers of highway were destroyed. The cost of damage was around $2.77 billion in U.S. dollars. Although the eruption caused a lot of damage, the logging companies, took the forest wood that was blown by the explosion and ash. All the wood, made into lumber, could have made 85,000, three bedroom homes. Though that is a lot of forest destroyed. So about 18 million trees over 45,500 acres were planted by hand. And now Mount St. Helens is still beautiful! :)
