What is a cinder cone? What eruptive styles are common at cinder cones?
Volcanoes made mostly of cinders and other rock particles that have been blown into the air are called cinder cones.
Materials in cinder cones are loosely arranged, the cones are not very high. They do have a fairly narrow base and steep sides.
Small volcanic bombs about the size of golf balls are called cinders.
Cinder cones form from explosive eruptions.
