        Life on Fire: Tectonic Volcanoes (Image Gallery)

        Volcanoes remind us that we are part of nature: we can’t defy their destructive forces. Even we have to face their wrath or flee. But at least scientists can help us anticipate an eruption. View a series of images of tectonic volcanoes to further understand how convergent and divergent plates can produce volcanic activity at subductive plate boundaries and mid-oceanic ridges.
