Earth Science Chapter 9– Song Lyrics

 

Explosive Pyroclastic

 

A volcano is a mountain

formed beneath the ground when

the Earth’s crust meets the mantle

and magma collects there until

 

it rises to the surface

because magma is less dense

than the surrounding rock is.

Then the magma becomes liquid.

 

Shield, cinder cone, and composite volcanoes

Explosive – pyroclastic

Now everybody knows

Shield, cinder cone, and composite volcanoes

Non-explosive lava flows

Now everybody knows

 

When the water content in

the magma is higher, then

the volcano is more likely

to erupt explosively.

 

Composite, also known as

stratavolcanoes, form as

explosive eruptions are

followed by flowing lava.

 

Shield, cinder cone, and composite volcanoes

Non-explosive lava eruptions

form shield volcanoes

Shield, cinder cone, and composite volcanoes

Cinder cone from pyroclastic

are steep but quickly erode
