Earthquakes tend to occur at or near the boundaries of tectonic plates.
Volcanoes tend to form at convergent tectonic plate boundaries where subduction is occurring (such as the western coast of South America) and at divergent plate boundaries where two tectonic plates are moving apart (e.g. the Mid-Atlantic-Ridge and Iceland). Earthquakes also occur at convergent boundaries and in fact these tend to cause the strongest earthquakes. Earthquakes also occur at transform boundaries (such as the San Andreas fault) however these do not tend to cause the formation of volcanoes. So to find volcanoes and large earthquakes you should be looking at convergent plate boundaries where subduction is occurring.
Depends on the areas. Although most earthquakes occur near plate boundaries. Earthquakes occur when tension is released from inside the crust. Plates do not always move smoothly alongside each other and sometimes get stuck. When this happens pressure builds up. When this pressure is eventually released, an earthquake tends to occur.
Earthquakes occur everywhere. In many places they are too small to detect or feel, but the tectonic plates are always moving and there are small earthquakes all of the time occurring all over the world. More earthquakes and larger earthquakes tend to occur on larger fault lines. Check out the links to see where they mainly occur. Shows that they mostly occur on major fault lines along the edges of the tectonic plates.http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/map/http://ds.iris.edu/seismon/Regions on solid rock tend to have few or no earthquakes. One earthquake of magnitude 5.5 in May 1909 was recorded in North Dakota making North Dakota one of the few areas with the least number of earthquakes in the US. In addition, Iowa, Maryland, Vermont, and Wisconsin also are in the group of states with the fewest recorded earthquakes.
Earthquakes tend to happen at or near plate boundaries. Britain is a long way from a plate boundary so does not tend to experience many earthquakes, and the vast majority of earthquakes that do occur are only recorded by seismometers and are too small for humans to feel. However there are some exceptions to this. For a list of earthquakes in the UK and their consequences, please see the related link.
