The melted rock ejected by a volcano from its top or fissured sides. It flows out in streams sometimes miles in length. It also issues from fissures in the earth's surface, and forms beds covering many square miles, as in the Northwestern United States.
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.
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.
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.
Magma which has, or is coming out of a volcanic crater or fissure.
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
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.
Lava (Sanskrit: à¤²à¤µ) (sometimes Lav) and his twin brother Kusha are the children of the Hindu god Rama and his wife Sita Devi, whose story is told in the Ramayana. According to legends, he was the founder of the city of Lahore, which bears its name after him.
Lava is a small hamlet situated 34 km east of the town of Kalimpong via Algarah in the state of West Bengal, India. Lava is situated at an altitude of 2,100 metres. It is one of the few places in West Bengal to receive snow in winter.
Lava is an experimental, object-oriented, interpreter-based programming language with an associated programming environment (LavaPE = Lava Programming Environment), which gets along without a text editor, but is totally based on structure editors. Only comments, constants and new identifiers have to be entered as text.
Lava found at Pompeii, Italy, was primarily carved as cameos, ranging in color from cream to dark brown and white to charcoal. It is very soft and therefore permits a skilled artisan to carve fine detail with high relief.
Lava, commonly known as black soap, is a heavy-duty hand cleaner made by WD-40, first produced in 1893. WD-40 acquired the brand from Procter & Gamble in 1999. Unlike typical hand soaps, Lava contains ground pumice, which gave the soap its name.
Lava is a class library for Java. Its packages evolved from several programmers' need for features in Java that were not available in the standard Java library. Although Lava includes several GUI-related classes, its main emphasis is in batch-oriented data processing and reporting applications. Thus, there is a heavy emphasis on stream parsing, data manipulation, and text formatting.
