volcanoes are openings in the earth's surface. when they are active they let ash, gas, and hot magma escape in sometimes violent in spectacular eruptions.the word volcano originally comes from the name of the roman god of fire. volcanoes are usually located where tectonic plates meet.this is especially true for the pacific ring of fire, an area around the pacific ocean where over 75% of the volcanoes are found. hot liquid rock under the volcano is called magma but when it oozes out it is known as lava.

there are many different types of volcanoes in the world. most volcanoes are located around the pacific ring of fire because that is the location of most of the earth's subduction zones.
