Lava is the word for magma (molten rock) when it erupts onto the Earth's surface. Geologists also use the word to describe the solidified deposits of lava flows and fragments hurled into the air by explosive eruptions (for example, lava bombs or blocks). Lava is from the Italian word for stream, which is derived from the verb lavare--to wash.

Partially molten rock that has risen through Earth's crust and been erupted onto the surface.
Melted magma from beneath the earth's crust which is forced up through cracks and pours forth from volcanoes
Magma which has reached the surface through a volcanic eruption. The term is most commonly applied to streams of liquid rock that flow from a crater or fissure. It also refers to cooled and solidified rock.

Magma that reaches the Earth's surface through a volcanic eruption. When cooled and solidified, forms extrusive (volcanic) igneous rock.
molten rock that erupts from a fissure or a vent (see magma).
Molten rock that erupts from a vent or fissure; see magma.
Molten rock (magma) that extrudes through a volcano
fluid (molten) rock that issues from a volcano or fissure.
Molten rock that erupts onto Earth's surface.
Magma that has come in contact with the air, (only the mane changes to lava, not the make-up) and flows on the earthâ€™s surface.
molten magma extruded from volcanic vent
Molten rock that flows over the surface of a volcano as a very dense fluid and solidifies to form a hard, dense rock.
Magma or molten rock that has reached the Earth's surface.
Molten rock after it has erupted from a volcano onto the Earth's surface.
The rock mass formed by consolidation of molten rock issuing from volcanic vents and fissures.
The term used for magma once it has erupted onto the Earth's surface.
Molten rock erupted onto the surface of the Earth. Lavas vary according to the chemistry of the molten rock. In general the more silica they contain, the more viscous they are. Basalt, a silica-poor ( basic) lava tends to flow easily and therefore form thin, extensive lava flows, while rhyolite lava ( acid) is so viscous it rarely flows and forms ' domes' above the site of the eruption.
Molten rock that has flowed out onto the Earth's surface.
Magma that flows from the earth's surface.
Lava is molten rock. It usually comes out of erupting volcanoes.
molten rock above a planet's surface.
Molten rock erupted from a volcano. Lava can occur in flows, domes, fragments and as pillows formed underwater.
the term for magma which has reached the Earth's surface and lost its dissolved gas content.

Molten rock that forms above the surface of the Earth as a result of volcanic activity.
Any molten material that is extrusive or volcanic, or the rock that forms from a molten extrusive.

Melted, or molten, rock is called magma if it is below the earth's surface, and lava if it reaches the earth's surface.
the red-hot molten rock materials violently or quietly extruded by a volcano. Lava is the term applied to magma when it finally reaches the earth's surface.

the molten rock flowing from a volcano or fissure in the earth; the rock formed by the cooling of this molten rock.l Some lavas are dense and glassly or crystalline, others are light and porous. [AHDOS
A general term for a molten extrusive; also, for the rock that is solidified from it.
Molten rock at or near the surface of the earth that becomes igneousrock. Below the surface, lava is known as magma.
Lava is molten rock expelled by a volcano during an eruption. Magma is molten rock below the earth's surface. Lava, when first exuded from a volcanic vent, is a liquid at temperatures from 700 Â°C to 1,200 Â°C (1,300 Â°F to 2,200 Â°F).
Lava is a rock-based experimental band hailing from Spain. The band is known for its complex, varied, and often cathartic musical arrangements, heavily influenced by pop, post-rock, folk, and traditional Spanish music. Some of the band members also work in other projects.
