Several factors trigger volcanic eruptions, including the buoyancy of magma, a build-up of pressure from the gases in the magma and an injection of new magma into a full magma chamber.
When a part of the earth's upper mantle or lower crust melts, magma forms. A volcano is essentially an opening or a vent through which this magma and the dissolved gases it contains are discharged.
A volcano is a rupture in the crust of a planetary-mass object, such as Earth, that
allows hot lava ... Erupting volcanoes can pose many hazards, not only in the
immediate vicinity of the eruption. ...

Volcanic eruptions occur when magma builds up beneath the Earth's crust and
forces its way to the surface. Natural vents in the crust allow magma passage to ...

Volcanoes form when magma reaches the Earth's surface, causing eruptions of
lava and ash. They occur at destructive (compressional) and constructive ...
A volcano begins as melted rock (magma) which rises from deep inside the earth

natural phenomena and examines their cause and effect.
Understanding how volcanoes work and how their eruptions can be predicted is

Volcanoes erupt because of density and pressure. The lower density of the
magma relative to the surrounding rocks causes it to rise (like air bubbles in
