Stratovolcanoes of the World, 2000

Stratovolcanoes (also known as composite volcanoes) are built of successive layers of ash and lava. This poster shows many of the most well known eruptions of strato volcanoes. The magma (molten rock) within the volcano is viscous and often contains trapped gas, causing explosive eruptions. Approximately 85% of stratovolcanoes are located around the Pacific Ocean, forming what is called the "Ring of Fire."
