Volcano

Volcano

  • A volcano is a weak spot in the crust that allows lava to pour out creating and destroying land.


Magma

Magma

  • Magma is molten mixture of hot rock that is underneath earths surface.


Section 3 1volcanoes and plate tectonics

Lava

  • Lava is magma that has already reached earths surface.


Ring of fire

Ring of Fire

  • The Ring of Fire is a long belt of volcanoes that occur along the mid-ocean ridges.


Island arc

Island Arc

An island arc is a string of islands.


Hot spots

Hot Spots

Is an area where magma comes out from deep within the mantle melts throughout the crust like a blow torch.


What is a volcano

What is a volcano?

  • Eruptions of volcano are dangerous on earth.

  • As it erupts magma inside it made of molten mixture forces its way out.

  • When it reaches the earths surface its called lava, as the lava comes out it destroys and creates land.


Location of volcanoes

Location of volcanoes

  • There are about 600 active volcanoes on earth and the ocean forming along plates.

  • The major belt of volcanoes is called the Ring of Fire.

  • Most of volcanoes form along the boundaries that diverge.


Volcanoes at diverging plate boundaries

Volcanoes at diverging plate boundaries

  • Volcanoes form along mid-ocean ridges which is called a rift valley under water, and lava pours out making new crust.

  • In few places like Iceland and Azore island have mid-ocean ridges that come out of the water.


Volcanoes at converging boundaries

Volcanoes at converging boundaries

  • Many volcanoes form near boundaries because when a volcano erupts magma is pushed to the sides magma some times pushes it to the ocean trench.

  • That falls down and goes up when its up it gets cold the weight increases it gets so heavy it goes back down doing the convection current.

  • Some times they form an island arc.


Hot spot volcanoes

Hot Spot volcanoes

  • Hot spots often lie in the middle of the continental or oceanic plates.


What i learned

What I Learned?

  • In the lesson from the notes I learned what are convection currents .Also how they work and what they are. We also learn that as lava comes on the surface to create and destroy land.
