Pacific Ring of Fire

The ring of volcanic activity around the rim of the Pacific Ocean.  The Pacific Ring of Fire is considered one of the world's most major tectonic plates with 452 volcanoes. 

When tectonic plates pull apart and push together they create events of earthquakes and volcanoes.

Known as one of the most volcanically and seismically active parts of the world, the Pacific Ring of Fire is an area where the Pacific Tectonic Plate encounters other tectonic plates.
