Caption: Shield volcano erupting. Cutaway computer artwork showing the internal structure of a shield volcano during an eruption. During an eruption magma (orange) forces its way through the Earth's crust (beige and purple) through a conduit (pipe, centre), and erupts as a mixture of lava and ash. The largest volcanic eruptions can propel ash into the stratosphere (11 kilometres high).
