Lava plateau is formed;

  • When magma reaches the surface of the earth through either a single or multiple vents/fissures
  • The lava is extremely fluid or low viscosity
  • The lava flows spreading evenly over a large area before cooling
  • The lava cools slowly forming an extensive plateau
  • The lava fills former valleys and covers most of the hills
  • The plateau may form through a series of eruptions which result into thick layers of lava.
