This resource defines and describes composite volcanoes, stratovolcanoes, subduction-zone volcanoes and composite cones. The information is from different sources and therefore the site gives a broad picture of these forms. The shape of the volcano is described as a function of the type and frequency of eruption and its proximity to plate boundaries. Full description.

This article, from Earth: Inside and Out, provides insight into what scientists are learning about Mt. Rainier's volcanic past and future. It provides an overview of the nature of the work of Tom Sisson as a mountaineer and geologist with the Volcano Hazards Program at the United States Geological Survey, and the on-the-job hazards he faces. It explains how Sisson is creating a three-dimensional map ... Full description.

This page describes the different types of calderas: Crater-Lake type calderas, which are associated with the collapse of stratovolcanoes; basaltic calderas, which result from the summit collapse of shield volcanoes; and resurgent calderas, which lack an association with a single centralized vent. Each type is described in detail with photographs, maps, diagrams, and examples. Multiple links lead ... Full description.

This site describes the nature of pressure surfaces and explains the dynamic processes associated with the eruption model. Magma composition and viscosity are discussed, as well as vesiculation. Also, there is a link to a computer program which allows the user to construct a diverse group of volcanic landforms through the simulation of variable types of eruptions. It can be downloaded free of charge. ... Full description.
