The Ring of Fire is an area where there are several continental and oceanic tectonic plates. When these plates collide, earthquakes occur, tsunamis are generated, and volcanoes erupt. The effect of this ring of fire can be seen from New Zealand to Japan, Alaska and North and South America. 90 percent of the world’s earthquakes and 78 percent of tsunamis occur in this Ring of Fire region.
This area is spread over 40 thousand kilometers. 75 percent of the world’s active volcanoes are in this region. The Ring of Fire affects 15 countries, including Japan, Russia, Philippines, Indonesia, New Zealand, Antarctica, Canada, USA, Mexico, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Peru, Ecuador, Chile and Bolivia.
