They happen at certain areas because of the plates under the Earth.

The Earth is made up of 7 shields or islands if you like that float around grinding and bumping into each other all the time settling and building up pressure. the worst areas for earthquakes and volcanoes is near the edges of these shields where all the movement is.


Earthquakes and volcanoes are usually found near plate boundaries.


earthquakes and volcanoes are caused by the shaking of the earth. Both can cause damage.


Earthquakes and volcanoes occur near plate boundaries, where tectonic plates meet.


This is where the fault lines of the North American and Pacific plate meet, an areas where there is lots of earthquakes, tsunamies (caused by quakes) and volcanoes.  Underneath these cracks in the Earth is magma (lava inside the earth), every once in a while, this magma will come to the surface and form volcanoes. and that is basically it


earthquakes happen before volcanoes because when there an earthqauke happens a volcano can form by the cracks in the earth and when the cracks cause volcanoes to erupted

earthquakes are when the earth shakes as two plates collide. volcanoes are formed by magma coming to the surface of the earth and cooling and hardening. this process repeats until it goes extinct. THE MAIN DIFFERENCE: earthquakes shake;volcanoes shoot lava.


They are both caused by the plates under the earth being unstable, therefore moving causing vibrations and the outcome is either volcanoes or earthquakes.


EarthQuakes and Volcanoes... aka plate tectonics


Both owe their existence to heat from the interior of the Earth, either at hot spots or at areas where movement occurs at tectonic plate boundaries.


the tectonic plates shake under the earth causing earthquakes


1. Earthquakes 2. Volcanoes Azuki



they are formed along the crustal movements of the earth.



Yes, they are what cause earthquakes, mountains and volcanoes.



Weathering and erosion change the surface of the earth very slowly. Earthquakes, volcanoes and asteroids change the surface immediately.


Earthquakes happen near a fault line. Fault lines are places in the earth where the tectonic plates are cracked. Tectonic plates are certain areas in the crust of the earth. The place at which these plates meet are actual cracks. These plates move and cause earthquakes.


because of the plates in earth shift fast and the force causes the earth to shake.


mexico has so many earthquakes because it was built on the oceans line of earth making it easy to have earthquakes


there are:plate movementsvolcanoesearthquakesfoldingfaulting


because the plates of earth is moving cause a big or small vibrate that cause earthquakes and cause a volcano to become active


the earth quakes happen because the volcanoes are fueled bye the center off the earth when that erupt they move the earths plate coursing earth quakes
