VOLCANOES - Thitsar
Volcanoes located underwater are also known as submarine volcanoes. There are at least 1,500 active volcanoes on the surface of the earth, but it is estimated that there may be more than 10,000 volcanoes in the Pacific Ocean only. It has more submarine volcanoes in the ring of fire than in the normal ocean area. It can cause Tsunamis and earthquakes.
Ring of fire
Ring of fire is not a circular ring. It shaped more like 40000 kilometer horseshoe. 452volcanoes streches from southern tip of America to the coast of North America across the Bering Strait down through Japan and into New Zealand.
Geologists measure volcano eruptions using the Volcano Explosively Index, which measures the amount of material released.
