Areas on or near fault lines (where two tectonic plates touch).

Areas in North America that would be most vulnerable to climate change are the coastal areas. Mountainous areas would also be vulnerable.


Yes. Iceland is one of the most volcanically active areas in the world.


Volcanoes mostly occur in areas where tectonic plates meet. Most of the active volcanoes in the world occur in what is called the Ring of Fire around the edges of the Pacific Ocean.


Walmart is vulnerable in the many areas. The most notable is customer service and in-stock


Most volcanoes are in the atlantic region


... Volcanoes form in the oceans and coastal areas of the world. The most reactive and dangerous volcanoes are located in what we call... "The Pacific Ring." Its basically a large circle in the pacific ocean that has many volcanoes surrounding. Therefore, the pacific coast of the USA is has the most volcanoes. Especially in further parts of Los Angelas, San Fransisco.


Yes, there are volcanoes in most desert areas of the world. Most are extinct, some are dormant and a few are active. I live in the Chihuahuan Desert and just a short drive from my home (30 minutes) there is an ancient volcanic field with hundreds of extinct volcanoes.


Plate tectonics (sp?) cause the west coast of North America, the east coast of Asia, the northern part of the subcontinent (known as India) and northeast part of Africa to be most vulnerable to earthquakes.


In areas where it is still common, children are most affected.


Mainly along the Ring of Fire. For more information, see the link below.


There are 3 kinds of volcanoes which are found around the world. They are shield volcanoes, cinder cone volcanoes, and composite volcanoes. Many of the most beautiful mountains in the world are composite volcanoes.

As the expansion of the Roman empire was ending, the conquests of new peoples left the legions with the primary objective of patrolling its borders. The areas most vulnerable were the boundaries along the Rhine and Danube rivers.


Volcanoes are located throughout most of the world. The most active volcanoes are found on the so-called "ring of fire" in Pacific Ocean.


There are many areas around the world where volcanoes reside. Most volcanoes are near plate boundaries (see "what are tectonic plates?") because this is where lava from the mantle is forced upward, to the surface. Volcanoes formed in the middle of plates are formed from "hot spots", regions where hot rock and magma are forced to the surface from deep in the mantle in tube-like formations. As plates slide across these hot spots, lines of volcanoes are formed.


The earthquake prone areas are those on or near fault lines or subduction zones, and those near active volcanoes. Most of the rim of the Pacific Ocean is one such area.


One of the most active areas for volcanoes found under the sea is known as Pacific Rim of Fire. This area has many volcanoes that could have a devastating effect if they erupt on areas including the Philippines.


earthquakes occur above faults, or where the tectonic plates meet. Volcanoes are usually in tropical areas.


Most of the volcanoes are situated around the Pacific Ocean. This place of location is commonly called the ring of fire. Most of such areas have their tectonic plates smashing on each other.
