About Volcanoes
  • Most volcanoes are formed when the boundaries of our planet's tectonic plates collide and overlap, eventually sinking deep inside.
  • Many get life by ‘hotspot volcanism’ which is the magmatic activity at the center of the tectonic plate.
  • Volcanoes have created the foundation of the land on our planet, crafting mountains, craters, soil beds and eventually making up to 80 percent of our surface.
  • About 1500 of them are active as of 2018.
