    An article about volcanoes from The New Book of Knowledge. Scholastic News Online. Scholastic News Online is a free resource with breaking news and highlights from the print magazine. Available for grades 1 . Volcanoes are scattered across the planet. About 1, active volcanoes can be found around the world, but countless ones are on the ocean floor. Most volcanoes – whether on land or underwater – are located where tectonic plates meet.

    Volcanoes played a crucial role in the evolution of the planet and early life, and are constantly reshaping the morphology of Planet Earth. Many active volcanoes are located in dense settlement areas, with over million people living in close proximity of still active or dormant volcanoes. Subglacial volcanoes cause eruptions beneath glaciers or sheets of ice, and the meltwater can cause catastrophic flooding. The U.S. Geological Survey has a color-coded system to warn those living close to volcanoes. Green means that the volcano is in its normal, or non-eruptive stage. Yellow warns of signs of background unrest.
