Storyboard Text

  • Would you be interested in knowing how volcanic eruptions are related to the Ring of Fire and other mountain ranges?
  • Sure!
  • Like the Andes Mountain range?
  • Let´s start with mountains... It all begins with a volcanic eruption. When the lava cools, it can form new ranges from the rock.
  • Exactly!  Also, the convection in the Earth´s mantle can play a role. From the convection, tectonic plates can move over time and form ranges like the Himalayas.
  • That´s all very interesting, but can you explain the Ring of Fire?
  • Sure! The Ring of Fire was developed from magma erupting from subduction zones and creating new volcanoes. This process took millions of years.
  • What else is there to know about the Ring of Fire?
  • Wow! I never would´ve thought of that!
  • It´s important to know that volcanoes formed in the Ring of Fire because there are more subduction zones near that area.
  • For sure! I really enjoyed learning about how volcanoes are related to the Ring of Fire and other mountain ranges around the world!
  • I have pretty much told you everything I know about this topic. It´s pretty interesting, right?
