What is the Ring of Fire?

 Q:   Ask a Question about What is the Ring of Fire?       
What is the Ring of Fire? AII around the rim of the Pacific Ocean is a circle of places of volcanic activity known as the Ring of Fire. The Ring of Fire is caused by shifts in the giant plates that make up the Earth's crust.

The Pacific plate is gradually disappearing under the surrounding continental plates, and volcanic activity marks the points where this movement is taking place.

Frequent earthquakes accompany the volcanic action in the countries surrounding the Pacific. Also, ocean trenches and underwater volcanoes form around the Ring of Fire.
