The picture shows a dramatic natural phenomenon called volcanic eruption in which water and gases, squeezed beneath the earth's surface, reach high temperatures that melt rocks and cause the surface of the earth to burst. Volcanoes have been called the earth's safety valves. It is estimated that there are over 500 active volcanoes in the world today. Over half of them are within the Ring of Fire which encircles the Pacific Ocean. Some are underwater.
