Most of the time, underwater volcanoes are created due to a subduction zone. A subduction zone is where two convergent plates come together and the denser one ends up being slid underneath the other plate. Because of this, as the denser plates gets closer and closer to the mantle, the crust starts to melt, creating magma. This magma floats up and creates volcanoes, under and above the water.

The vast majority of the world's volcanoes are above sea level.
