Would you expect coral reefs to grow around the bases of underwater volcanoes off the coast of Alaska?
No, coral reef ecosystems are based on the powerful energy of provided by the tropical equitorial sun. Alaska is a dim and dark place in comparison, and doesnt get enough sunlight to support a reef.
What type of hazards a person might expect at continental to continental crust coinvergent b oundaries?
Yes. There are three ways to describe a volcano's activity; there can be active, dormant, or extinct volcanoes. Active volcanoes have erupted recently. Dormant volcanoes aren't erupting right now, but vulcanologist's expect they could erupt at any time. Extinct volcanoes haven't erupted for tens of thousands of years, and aren't expected to erupt again. Gsophia, do you know dormant means inactive?
There are no active volcanoes in Scotland, only extinct ones which do not erupt. However, according to recent scientific research, there is evidence of lightweight UK earthquakes and the re-activation of dormant pre-historic volcanoes. So, we might even expect some 'Vesuvius' type volcanic activity in the future.
