Ring of Fire - Zone of Earthquakes and Volcanoes

Scientists believe that earthquakes and volcanoes occur along the Earth’s "ring of fire."

This video clip, from Understanding the Earth, is narrated by Dr. David Pearson (who lectured at Laurentian University in Sudbury, Ontario).  It provides background on tectonic plates and how they collide (causing earthquakes, volcanoes and mountain formation).
