Composite Volcano). 2. Which most likely had explosive eruptions, Fuji or Olympus Mons? Fuji 4. Compare your plotted locations to the tectonic plate boundary map above. Where on the plates are most these volcanoes located? How can you explain this? Most of the plotted locations are on a continental plate that has another plate subducting beneath it (oceanic plate). There are also some located near other plate boundaries. They are never located far away from a plate boundary. There are also random hot spots like Yellowstone or Hawaii. 5. Where (tectonic setting) are most of the ‘high-silica volcanoes’ (red dots)? They are usually on a continental plate. This is where an oceanic plate is subducting below it. 6. Where (tectonic setting) are most of the ‘medium-silica volcanoes’ (blue dots)?
