A volcano is a location where during eruptions, lava, gasses and stones are expelled. This form of volcanic activity is most common near the edges of tectonic plates. Because lava differs in terms of composition and viscosity, there are different types of volcanoes: stratovolcanoes, volcanic cones and shield volcanoes.
