The location where this type of hazard usually occurs Most volcanoes are located at the edge of the tectonic plate boundaries inside the ring of fire.
The map below shows the normal location of this type of hazard
Convection currents are in the earths reaction to heat energy within the earths mantle causing a repeated rise and fall on earths properties. It pushes magma to the earths surface form volcanoes.
This map shows the area where volcanoes are most likely to happen its called the ring of fire. The ring of fire is located in the pacific ocean.It also shows that most volcanoes are locate at the boundaries of the tectonic plates.
First the Tectonic plates rub together creating friction and generating heat when that is done all the friction and heat moves up through vents at the bottom of the volcano and it builds up inside the volcano to get to a burning hot liquid and the volcano gets so full the lid of the volcano gets a lot of small cracks in it and all the lava moves to the crack until the lid explodes off.
