This site describes where volcanoes are found in terms of plate tectonics and explains why they occur at those locations. S map shows that volcanoes are located mainly at plate boundaries. Then there are explanations for plate motion, mantle convection, and magma generation. The three types of plate boundaries are listed as divergent, convergent, and transform. There is also information about the relationship between types of boundaries and types of volcanism and the fact that intraplate volcanism describes volcanic eruptions within tectonic plates. The site features a diagram that depicts each type, with a link for more information about the Earth's internal heat energy and interior structure.
