Volcanoes are openings in Earth’s crust where lava, gas, and ash can erupt. Where are active volcanoes located
2. An earthquake is a violent shaking of Earth’s surface. Where are earthquakes common?
Gizmo Warm-up Volcanoes, earthquakes, mountains, and other features of Earth’s surface owe their origin to the movements of plates : enormous, slowly-moving sections of Earth’s crust. At plate boundaries, plates collide, move apart, move under or over each other, or slide past one another. The theory of plate tectonics describes how the plates move, interact, and change the physical landscape. The Plate Tectonics Gizmo shows a cross-section, or side view, of Earth. (Not to scale.) Above the cross section is a bird’s-eye view of the same location. 1. Turn on Show labels
