Dataset contains 35 data items (see table below).

Overview

Shield volcanoes generally have slope patterns that are gentler at lower elevations and steepens at higher elevations, before flatting near the summits. These slope patterns are a result of highly fluid lava flows from the volcanoes, resulting in the volcanoes' lower profile, which resembles a fallen shield lying face up on the ground. Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa of Hawaii, USA, are examples of shield volcanos.
