The Pacific Ring of Fire

The Pacific Ring of Fire is an area where many earthquakes and volcanic eruptions happen. They occur in the basin of the Pacific Ocean in a 25,000 mile shape not unlike that of a horseshoe with a nearly a continuous line of oceanic trenches, volcanic arcs and plate movements. The Ring of Fire consists of 452 volcanoes and 75% of the earth’s active and dormant volcanoes.
