Are hot spots where volcanoes are found?
Volcanoes can be found at hot spots, but most volcanoes are not. The majority of volcanoes on Earth are near plate boundaries.
Cone volcanoes which are likely to erupt explosively are found at subduction zones. Spreading zones (constructive plate boundaries) and hot spots produce quieter volcanoes because their lava is thinner. The ones at hot spots are shield volcanoes.
A hot spots is not something you find on a volcano. Some volcanoes form on hot spots. A hot spot is an area where mantle material that is hotter than the surrounding material rises up and gathers beneathe the crust. Ome of this melts into magma and rises to the surface to form volcanoes. About 10% of volcanoes are the result of hot spots. The rest are formed at plate boundaries. The most well-known hot… Read More
Shield volcanoes are not hot spots but they are associated with them. However, such volcanoes can also form at rift zones.
No. Most volcanoes are associated with plate boundaries rather than hot spots.
Magma can be found in the upper mantle at plate boundaries and hot spots, and in the magma chambers beneath volcanoes.
Volcanoes can be found at hot spots, convergent plate boundaries, and divergent plate boundaries.
No, they are found along plate boundaries and over "hot spots" in the crust.
Volcanoes associated with hot spots include the volcanoes of Hawaii, the Canary Islands Mount Erebus, the Yellowstone Caldera and Iceland, which has volcanoes due to a combination of a hot spot and a plate boundary. There are many other hotspot related volcanoes.
the right answer is because hot spots is were magma leaks up into cracks in the earth and creates volcanoes
Yes, it is not uncommon to find volcanoes at hot spots.
Yes; hot spots are huge columns of hot mantle material rising from a great depth. New volcanoes form and old volcanoes become extinct as plates move over the hot spots.
Shield volcanoes can be found in any setting where magma can reach the surface, but most are found on oceanic plates. They are usually situated on hot spots, such as Kilauea, Mauna Loa, and Mauna Kea in Hawaii. Since hot spots are not associate with plate boundaries, plate boundaries would not be important when determing locations of shield volcanoes.
Volcanoes can be found in the the middle of continents because there is hot-spots underneath the earths crust which can form volcanoes and earthquakes can happen in the middle of continents.
At hot spots rock in the upper mantle melts and travels up through the crust, where it will either coo underground or erupt from volcanoes.
they are found in subduction zones, hot spots, spreading areas, or faults.
Hot spots are found in continental or oceanic crust, the result of magma plumes from deep in the mantle. Two notable hot spots are the Yellowstone Caldera in the United States and the Hawaiian Island Chain, formed of undersea volcanoes which broke the surface of the Pacific Ocean.
Are the largest volcanoes on earth by volume are found on hot spots tectonic spreading centers or oceanic transform faults?
Largest by volume = hot spots. See Mauna Loa, Hawaiian Islands - and Tenerife, Canary Islands.
Volcanoes only form in a few geologic settings. They can be found near areas where tectonic plates either collide or pull apart, or at hot spots. Alabama is nowhere near any plate boundaries or hot spots, so there is nothing to drive volcanic activity.
at hot spots(a place where volcanoes are very active)
they are fromed at hot spots
Which volcanoes are located at hot spots
flood basalts and volcanoes
volcanoes occur along the plate boundaries of the 16 major plates on earth. most are found on the ocean floor near hot spots underground
Most volcanoes of any type, including cinder cones, are found at plate boundaries, but some are associated with hot spots.
There are no volcanoes because there are no active tectonic plates in the eastern portions of the US and Canada. Because the phenomena required for volcanoes: Hot spots, spreading zones and subduction zones, are not found there.
The landform region that are formed by volcanoes are called hot spots.
All Volcanoes are formed at weaker spots in the tectonic plates. The weak spots are usually near the edges of plates, and most volcanoes are formed there. Sometimes though, plates move over hot spots, and if a weak area of the plate is over that hot spot, a volcano (shield volcano) might form.
volcanoes can be found on places called hot spots. Hot spots are extremely hot places deep within earths mantle. the magma that forms at these spots slowly rises toward the surface because the magma is less dense than the surrounding material.
Volcanoes away from plate boundaries are associated with hot spots. Hot spots mark places where extra hot material rises from deep within the mantle, possibly from near the core.
A volcano is not a type of fault. Volcanoes can be found at convergent and divergent plate boundaries and away from plate boundaries at hot spots.
volcanoes in Hawaii are formed by hot spots hot spots are areas of constant volcano activity. They are derived from unusually hot areas in the mantle. The overlapping mantle forms plumes of magma that rise and form volcanoes. source: http://visearth.ucsd.edu/VisE_Int/platetectonics/hot_spot.html
no hot spots
They occur over hot spots
They come from hot spots
Volcanoes that form islands over hot spots sometimes become dormant because they move away from the hot spot. If they move away from the hot spot, magma is no longer created.
If Volcanos weren't located over hot spots there woul;d be nothing for them to erupt.
A volcano can occur at hot spots by a rock in the earths surface touch the hot spot it erupts and then the volcano will kill a lot of things.
Volcanoes form from either techtonic plates crashing together or from hot spots under the earth
hot spots are stationary and the plate move over it. this leaves a chain of volcanoes as the plates are moving. the volcanoes get younger as you approach the active hot spot. date the islands and you will know the speed of the plates
Yes I am pretty sure.
They have no won to tuk them in
the hotspots of volcanoes are when they are near tectonic plates when diverting or coliding
Areas where stray volcanoes are located are called 'Hot Spots' such as the volcanoes located on the Hawaian islands
Hot spots have generated all types of volcanoes but are most often. If you mean to ask about specific volcanoes, there are too many to count, so a few groups and notable volcanoes will be listed: The volcanoes of Hawaii The volcanoes of the Canary Islands The Yellowstone supervolcano The San Francisco volcanic complex (including Sunset Crater and the San Francisco Peaks) The volcanoes of Iceland (associated with both a hot spot and a divergent… Read More
Volcanic activity over hot spots on the ocean floor form islands. Magma rising from hot spots congeal from basaltic lava flows forming Shield Volcanoes which over time grow into islands.
Hot spot volcanoes such as those in Hawaii and the Yellowstone Caldera form as a result of extra hot material rising from deep within the mantle. While most volcanoes can only form near plate boundaries, hot spot volcanoes can form in the middle of a tectonic plate. Unlike at subduction zones, which are generally associated with stratovolcanoes, hot spots that form under oceanic crust typically produce shield volcanoes. Hot spots under continental crust can be… Read More
No. Mars does not have plate tectonics. The volcanoes on Mars are the result of hot spots.
