... where tectonic plates collide deep below the Earth's surface.
The Pacific Ring of Fire, as illustrated above is a horseshoe pattern of
convergent boundaries along the ring. When plates collide together,
chains of volcanoes. are created. Almost all plate tectonics along the
Ring of Fire collide and sink into the ocean floor as convergent plates.
In fact, about 90% of the world’s earthquakes occur at these zones of
subduction along the Pacific Ring of Fire.
