Ring of Fire
The Ring of Fire is surrounded by the Pacific Plate, which is surrounded by the Pacific Ocean. It contains more than half of the world’s volcanoes. Some of the world’s famous volcanoes are in this fantastic ring in the ocean. The existence is explained by plate tectonics. The Ring of Fire is on one of the plates of the earth’s crust. Newly-formed magma rises to the air of the earth’s surface and erupts, forming chains of these violent volcanoes, like the Ring of Fire.
The Ring of Fire is very big. It stretches from New Zealand to Alaska and eastern Asia to North and South America. The Ring of Fire also produces heavy seismic activity. Frequent earthquakes are also very common in the Ring of Fire.
