Volcanic Landforms, Volcanoes and Plate Tectonics

Some notes on Volcanoes from Tulane University.

Some words used in here are taught at A Levels and beyond, e.g. andesitic, rhyolitic, however, otherwise many of the words should be familiar to you all at O levels.

The sections on Shield volcano and Stratovolcano will be most useful to us.
