Which of the following is an example of the most explosive type of volcano ?
Cinder cones volcanoes
Flood basalt volcanoes
Answer: Calderas volcanoes
Calderas volcanoes are the most explosive type of volcano. A caldera is a bowl-shaped depression formed when a volcano collapses into the void left when its magma chamber is emptied. Rhyolite caldera complexes are the most explosive of
Earth’s volcanoes but often don’t even look like volcanoes. They are usually
so explosive that when they erupt they end up collapsing in on themselves rather than building any tall structure.
