Magma is the liquid rock removed by a well of lava amid an ejection. The subsequent rock after cementing and cooling is additionally called magma. The liquid rock is framed in the inside of a few planets, including Earth, and some of their satellites. The wellspring of the warmth that melts the stone inside of the earth is geothermal vitality. At the point when initially emitted from a volcanic vent, magma is a fluid at temperatures from 700 to 1,200 °C (1,292 to 2,192 °F).

A magma stream is a moving overflowing of magma, which is made amid a non-dangerous unrestrained ejection. When it has quit moving, magma sets to shape volcanic rock. The term magma stream is ordinarily abbreviated to magma. In spite of the fact that magma can be up to 100,000 times a greater number of gooey than water, magma can stream extraordinary separations before cooling and cementing as a result of its thixotropic and shear diminishing properties.The structure of all magma in the Earth's hull is overwhelmed by silicate minerals, generally feldspars, olivine, pyroxenes, amphiboles, micas and quartz.Explosive emissions create a blend of volcanic fiery debris and different sections called tephra, as opposed to magma streams. "Lava" originates from Italian, and is likely gotten from the Latin word labes which implies a fall or slide.

Once in a while, a volcanic cone may load with magma however not eject. Magma which pools inside of the caldera is known as a magma lake. Magma lakes don't for the most part continue for long, either depleting again into the magma chamber once weight is soothed (more often than not by venting of gasses through the caldera), or by depleting by means of emission of magma streams or pyroclastic blast.

There are just a couple locales on the planet where lasting pools of magma exist. These include:

Mount Erebus, Antarctica

Puʻu ʻōʻō and Halemaumau Crater on Kilauea fountain of liquid magma, Hawaii

Erta Ale, Ethiopia

Nyiragongo, Democratic Republic of Congo

Ambrym, Vanuatu.

A magma wellspring is a volcanic wonder in which magma is compellingly however non-violently shot out from a hole, vent, or gap. The most elevated magma wellsprings recorded were amid the 1999 ejection of Mount Etna in Italy, which came to statures of 2,000 m (6,562 ft). Notwithstanding, magma wellsprings saw amid Mount Vesuvius' 1779 emission are accepted to have come to no less than 3,000 m (9,843 ft). Magma wellsprings may happen as a progression of short heartbeats, or a ceaseless plane of magma.

Magma tubes are framed when a stream of generally liquid magma cools on the upper surface adequately to shape an outside layer. Underneath this covering, which being made of rock is a fantastic separator, the magma can keep on streaming as a fluid. At the point when this stream happens over a drawn out timeframe the magma conductor can frame a passage like gap or magma tube, which can direct liquid rock numerous kilometers from the vent without cooling obviously. Regularly these magma tubes channel out once the supply of new magma has quit, leaving an impressive length of open passage inside of the magma stream.

All in all, the piece of a magma decides its conduct more than the temperature of its emission. The consistency of magma is critical in light of the fact that it decides how the magma will act. Magmas with high thickness are rhyolite, dacite, andesite and trachyte, with cooled basaltic magma additionally entirely gooey; those with low viscosities are naturally ejected basalt, carbonatite and once in a while andesite.

Magma streams are tremendously ruinous to property in their way. Be that as it may, losses are uncommon since streams are typically sufficiently moderate for individuals and creatures to get away, however this is subject to the thickness of the magma. Regions of late magma streams keep on speaking to a danger long after the magma has cooled. Where youthful streams have made new terrains, area is more flimsy and can sever into the ocean. Streams frequently have profound breaks, and any fall against new magma is like falling against broken glass. Tough trekking boots, long jeans, and gloves are prescribed when crossing magma flows.
