|What is Shield Volcano? A shield volcano is a broad volcano with sloping sides that is formed mainly out of runny lava that flows out of its central summit vent. Examples of Shield Volcanoes: are Mauna Loa on the Island of Hawaii, Wolf volcano in the Galapagos Islands, and Nyamuragira in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Characteristics: Basaltic magma, which is high in temperature, very low on silica, and with low gas content. Basic lava, which is non-acidic and very runny. Gentle sides as the lava flow for long distances before it solidifies. No layers, as the volcano just consists of lava.|
