What is Ring of Fire?

A huge ring of volcanic and seismic (earthquake) activity was noticed in an area from New Zealand, along the east edge of Asia, across the Aleutian Islands of Alaska and along the coast of North and South America. This activity makes up about 75% of the world’s active and dormant volcanoes and has been named ‘Ring of Fire’ due to the curved area the blazing volvanoes sit on.Also, Johnny Cash and his wife, June Carter along with Merle Kilgore wrote a song ‘Ring of Fire’ which released in 1963.
