The Ring of Fire is a major area in the basin of the Pacific Ocean where a large number of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions occur. In a 40,000 km (25,000 mi) horseshoe shape, it is associated with a nearly continuous series of oceanic trenches , volcanic arcs , and volcanic belts and plate movements. It has 452 volcanoes (more than 75% of the world's active and dormant volcanoes ). [1] The Ring of Fire is sometimes called the circum-Pacific belt .

About 90% [2] of the world's earthquakes and 81% [3] of the world's largest earthquakes occur along the Ring of Fire. The next most seismically active region (5–6% of earthquakes and 17% of the world's largest earthquakes) is the Alpide belt , which extends from Java to the northern Atlantic Ocean via the Himalayas and southern Europe. [4] [5]

All but three of the world's 25 largest volcanic eruptions of the last 11,700 years occurred at volcanoes in the Ring of Fire. [6]
