Volcanoes erupt due to pressure that the weight of the rocks puts on the magma and forces it to the surface out any available vent or exit provided to it. The magma is in a reservo...
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.
Erupting volcanoes can pose many hazards, not only in the immediate ... from the
core-mantle boundary in a fixed space that causes large-volume melting.
A volcano begins as melted rock (magma) which rises from deep inside the earth
toward the surface. As the gas-filled magma rises ...
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

The friction causes earthquakes and volcanic eruptions near the edges of the
plates. The theory that explains this process is called plate tectonics. Volcano
Where plates move away from each other at spreading or divergent plate
margins, volcanic eruptions are gentle extrusions of basaltic lava. Most of these
