Description:

This site describes lava flows in terms of the composition of the lava. It discusses compositional types such as basaltic and andesite, and briefly covers effusion rates. The effusion rates (volume of magma generated over a given amount of time) for historical eruptions of basaltic lava are highly variable while the effusion rates for andesite and dacite are much lower due to their higher viscosities.
