Faults are fractures between two blocks of rocks. Normal faults and thrust faults are two types of faults that cause earthquakes.
Earthquakes on the Ring of Fire
The Ring of Fire forms a horseshoe shape around the Pacific Ocean. It is home to 75% of the world's volcanoes and 90% of its earthquakes. The Pacific Ocean is decreasing in size as the Atlantic Ocean increases in size.
Subduction zones are found along the Ring of Fire that generate earthquakes when two plates collide and the rocks fracture.
