Maple Grove, MN -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/02/2014 -- World Landforms is a dynamic and informative portal unfurling an ocean of knowledge about various landforms including lesser known shield volcano facts. Shield volcanoes, interestingly, are formed when magma (basically the viscous basaltic lava) from different volcanoes accumulates as sheets of lava that, over time, develops into the low expansive shape of the shield volcano.

Continuing the exquisite details, the website mentions that in shield volcanoes there are magma chambers at the bottom which flow out at the time eruptions occur through magma conduits that serve as a pipe facilitating this flow.

Similarly, the website explains all other features of these volcanoes and their roles together with their technical names like Dike, Sill, Stratum, Fumaroles, Lava Lake and more. The website chooses easy-to-understand descriptive sentences to ensure that the streams of knowledge and information remain comprehensible. As far as locations of these shield volcanoes, they are found in the Hawaiian-Emperor sea-mount chain (Mauna Loa), Iceland shields, East Africa (Nyamuragira) and Galapagos Islands (Fernandina).
