What is a volcano?

 Q:   Ask a Question about What is a volcano?       
What is a volcano? Volcanoes are openings in the Earth's crust through which molten lava, red-hot rocks, steam and fumes pour out. We usually think of a volcano as a smoking mountain that erupts explosively, but most volcanoes are simply cracks in the crust through which lava flows continuously.

The more familiar kind of volcano has a single central pipe though which lava reaches the surface, building up into a cone as it cools. The cone consists of layers of lava and volcanic ash. There is usually a crater at the centre.

Most active volcanoes smoke and spit out occasional pieces of lava, and dramatic eruptions are rare.
