Why is japan likely to have frequent volcanic eruptions and earthquake?
Frequent volcanic eruptions
The most likely answer is a earthquake or the movement of tectonic plates. As earthquakes are the most common causes of volcanic eruptions.
Near the site of volcanic eruptions.
Most tsunamis originate along what is called the 'Ring of Fire' that encircles the Pacific Ocean. The most frequent cause of tsunamis is an undersea earthquake. Tsunamis can be started by an earthquake, landslide, or volcanic eruption under the ocean floor.
There are several scenarios which can cause a tsunami to hit the Oregon coast. A large earthquake anywhere in the Pacific, volcanic eruptions, and large landslides are probably the three most likely.
collision of tectonic plates
The ring of fire has the most active volcano's in the world
Volcanic eruptions happen, somewhere on the planet, every day. Check the website of the US Geological Survey for the latest information. There are currently volcanic eruptions in Italy, Ethiopia, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, Vanuatu, Mexico, and Chile, among others. They are likely to cause minimal destruction, if any.
California, Alaska and Japan are all locations that have frequent earthquakes.

Yes, because of Volcano Eruptions in past will result easily to have Earthquakes.
That is most likely to be Basalt, also called bluestone
A widening of a lake for example. It is a physical barrier. Not forest fires or volcanic eruptions.
If an earthquake strikes, such a street is likely to get destroyed.
It would most likely form from hydrothermal activity related to a volcano.
If the magma has a high water content, then the volcano will most likely have an explosive eruption. Also, vocanoes can have explosive eruptions if the magma contains a large percentage of silica. Hope this helps!
Iceland most likely, Italy has also had its fair share of volcanoes, but Iceland has continuous eruptions and other volcanic activity.
Lightning occurs in thuderstorms, but it can also happen in dry air disturbed by dust storms, and in clouds accompanying volcanic eruptions.
Any water ice that existed on Io was likely boiled off by frequent volcanic activity. Io's gravity was likely insufficient to hold onto the hot water vapor.
No. The inner core does not directly affect volcanic activity. Earth experiences an estimate 50 eruptions every year from volcanoes on land and even more from volcanoes under the sea. So there is almost always some volcanic activity going on. A number of circumstances are believed to be capable of triggering volcanic eruptions, most of which involve events in the general vicinity of the volcano in question. One likely cause of some eruptions is a… Read More
linchen would grow first because its a type of organism that is likely to appear in most volcani eruptions
Volcanic activity. It was most likely created by a long-lived plume of rising mantle material that bulged the surface upward. This provided the molten rock for the eruptions which built the volcano.
It is likely that ancient man at some point observed fires that resulted from lightning strikes or volcanic eruptions, and became curious about that unusual phenomenon, and started to investigate it.
An earthquake may violently disturb the the ocean floor, forcing the deeper water upward and creating enormous waves near the surface. These waves are similar, although many thousands of times larger, than the waves caused by dropping a stone into the water. While most tsunamis are caused by powerful undersea earthquakes, an undersea landslide or volcanic eruption, or an asteroid crashing into the ocean, can also start a tsunami, but these events are less frequent… Read More
it would most likely be explosive eruptions because the lava formed by an explosive eruption is very slow, it is more likely to harden at the top of the volcano.
Landslides usually occur after an earthquake so they are quite likely to occur in Hawaii because of it's seismic and volcanic activity they are also common in the cascade mountains.
The focus is a feature of an earthquake; it is the point underground where the earthquake originates, directly beneath the epicenter. A hot spot is an area away from a plate boundary that produces volcanic activity, most likely due to a rising plume of extra hot material in the mantle.
Volcanic eruptions are most likely to occur along a roughly horseshoe-shaped rim known as the Pacific Ring of Fire. This area which mostly borders the Pacific Ocean is characterised by high tectonic activity, and holds about 75% of the world's current active and dormant volcanoes. It is also where about 90% of earthquakes occur. The Pacific Ring of Fire stretches from the Andes Mountains in South America, north along the coasts of western Central America… Read More

A vulcanologist is most likely to study the cooling of lava after a volcanic eruption
If there is liquid in volcanic rocks, it would most likely be water.
Is there any other natural disaster other than earthquakes tsunamis hurricanes volcanic eruptions tornadoes or flood?
You pretty much got all the likely ones covered. There are avalanches, wildfires, and landslides too. And there are plenty of unlikely natural disasters too, like a meteor hitting the earth.
Vulcanologists may try and infer a likely eruption, by looking at changes that may be due to rising mama. Such as swelling of the earth's surface, changes in hot springs or wells, changes in magnetism, changes in gravity, measurements of earth resistivity.
A ridge or specifically the mid-atlantic ridge runs straight through Iceland. For those of you without middle school level science knowledge a ridge is an opening in the ground underwater formed by tectonic plates pushing or pulling away from each other.
Most fossils are found in sedimentary rocks. Places that were especially likely to create fossils that we can find today are river beds, peat bogs, shallow seas, and anoxic waters. Volcanic eruptions also sometimes create many fossils by burying organisms in ash.
A metamorphic rock is most likely to form in an earthquake zone.
Along the San Andreas Fault in California is one likely place for an earthquake.
The area around Vancouver Island is the most likely to experience an earthquake. A serious earthquake is in the forecast for sometime this century.
As earthquakes occur when plates shift along a fault line and volcanoes erupt though breaks in the crust, it stands to reason that when a shift occurs along a fault line that it will make it easier for magma to find a passageway to the surface and allow a volcano to erupt. The above is true on a global tectonic scale and there is indeed a strong correlation between convergent and divergent plate boundaries, seismic… Read More
an earthquake hazard
It is likely to produce pyroclastic flows which are cascades of very hot ash, dust gas and boulders. As well as volcanic bombs
earthquake most likely to occur- seismic zones , earthquake prone areas/regions where active volcanos are, landslides and plate movements takes place
It depends on what type of volcano they are; Active - very likely to erupt e.g Mt Etna Dormant(sleeping) - a volcano which has not erupted for many years. For example, Mt Pinatubo erupted in 1991 after 500years of dormany Extinct - a volcano in which has not erupted for many thousand or millions of years
In most cases, no. However, there is evidence that, on a few occasions, earthquakes appear to have triggered eruptions, most likely by disturbing the magma chamber beneath the volcano. Earthquakes often precede a volcanic eruption, be these are not the cause of the eruption, but are rather a result of the movement of magma that leads to an eruption.
There are several volcanoes in Washington, a few of which have already had eruptions in recorded history, most famously the 1980 eruption of Mount St Helens. Washigton's volcanoes are a result of the Cascadia Subduction Zone, where two of Earth's tectonic plates collide.
Mafic Magma forms volcanic rock.
When Mount St. Helens erupted on May 18, 1980, red hot lava did not spew out of the volcano and pour down its flanks. This perception of a volcanic eruption is a common one and is probably due in part to pictures seen on television or in hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhbooks of the beautiful lava flows and lava fountains in Hawai'i. The type of eruptions in Hawai'i are known as hawaiian volcanism and are far less dangerous… Read More
The word "rent" here likely means "tore open" (past tense of to rend). The noun rent is similarly but seldomly used as a synonym for a tear, fissure, or breach. This could be a reference to earthquakes or volcanic eruptions, which can open fissures in the surface, except not to the extent shown in Hollywood movies.
