Where is basaltic magma formed?
Which type of volcano is a basaltic magma?
Where a volcano produces low viscosity, runny lava, it spreads far from the source and forms a volcano with gentle slopes: a shield volcano. Most shield volcanoes are formed from fluid, basaltic lava flows.
Is basaltic magma the most explosive?
What does basaltic magma produce?
What is the meaning of basaltic?
What is the characteristics of basalt?
Where is basalt commonly found?
How does a basaltic volcano form?
How is basalt formed?
Why is basaltic lava hotter?
How hot is basaltic lava?
Why is basaltic magma rarely explosive?
Is basaltic magma viscous?
Thus, basaltic magmas tend to be fairly fluid (low viscosity), but their viscosity is still 10,000 to 100,0000 times more viscous than water. Rhyolitic magmas tend to have even higher viscosity, ranging between 1 million and 100 million times more viscous than water.
