The more dense plate goes below the less dense one. The other two are the oceanic-continental and the continental-continental. They also occur when both plates strike each other (Tarbuck, Lutgens, & Tasa, 2014).
4.) The feature labeled "C" is a 3000-foot tall mountain with a slope angle of about 30 degrees. What type of volcano would this likely be, and what sorts of volcanic hazards might you expect to be exposed to if you lived near it?
The air eruptions present a significant hazard to pilots. The reason is once the explosion occurs, the high temperatures can melt the particles and as they change the shape of the turbine blades, they disrupt the operations of the turbine. Thus, it distracts pilots of airplanes or jet and can cause major crashes. The distraction in 1989 in Indonesia raised such an alarm.
In case of an explosion, it could result in deaths or injuries. The erupted solid can travel faster than the humans escape, or it could be that the fluid covered the whole area. A similar occurrence is the one in Zaire at
