Where are volcanoes most likely to form?


Question asked by: knowitall

Volcanoes form because the surface of the earth is not one solid mass but rather lots of plates that slide around.

Therefore where these meet, where the plates touch each other, you are likely to get volcanoes, as matter from underneath can come out and vent through tensions and movements along the plate or tectonic lines.
