Volcanoes are formed at convergent and divergent plate boundaries.

hotspot volcanoes are formed away from the edge of plate boundaries. Plate boundary volcanoes are near a plate boundary

The Mid Ocean ridge is the plate boundary which results in the volcanoes being formed. This is the sew between two major plates dividing the earth.

why are volcanoes made in a constructive plate boundary

The volcanoes of Hawaii were not formed on a plate boundary. They were formed by the Hawaii hot spot.

I think they are formed on Convergent Boundaries

Plate tectonics cause sea floor volcanoes. This is because in a convergent boundary the plate collide making the formed volcano erupt.

Volcanoes can form at convergent boundaries, divergent boundaries, and at hot spots away from any plate boundary.

volcanoes form along a mid-ocean ridge and at a diverging plate boundary many of the volcanoes are around the pacific plate

constructive plate boundaries cause volcanoes.

It was formed from the volcanism created by a subducting oceanic plate at a convergent plate boundary.

plate boundaries can produce volcanoes

The Transform plate boundary commonly forms a chain of volcanoes - Professer Humifiken

Almost all volcanoes are located on a plate boundary.

The plate boundary between the Nazca Plate and the South American Plate does produce volcanoes, earthquakes, and tsunamis. Hurricanes have nothing to do with plate boundaries.

its on a convergent plate boundary.

The boundary that is formed is called a Tranform Boundary

No plate boundary is formed at islands. Islands may be formed by convergent plate boundaries, but they can also be formed by other causes.

Virtually all of the world's volcanoes are located at the boundaries between tectonic plates. It is most common to find volcanoes where an oceanic plate collides with a continental plate. It is the boundary between the Pacific Plate and the continental plates around it that is called the "ring of fire" because so many volcanoes are formed at this boundary. In the collision the denser oceanic plate will be forced underneath of the continental plate. This is called 'subduction', and it usually occurs in destructive plate boundaries. Volcanoes are then formed, when the oceanic plate melts and the molten rock rises, being squeezed up by the forces of the mass above.

A convergent boundary is a boundary between two colliding plates. Examples of landforms that are created at convergent plate boundaries are mountain ranges, trenches and volcanoes.

Volcanoes and earthquakes are associated a continental plate boundary.
