The horseshoe shaped circle is 40,000 km (25,000 miles) long. It has 452 volcanoes with 75% of the world's active volcanoes in the circle. Geologists use the term Ring of Fire to describe the volcanoes and great earthquakes.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. The Ring of Fire is sometimes called the circum-Pacific belt. 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.There are various types of volcanoes that are seen on Earth, Mars, and the moons of Jupiter and Saturn. Although some remain dormant, there are many active volcanoes. Located in the basin of the Pacific Ocean is an area called the Pacific Ring of Fire. This region witnesses a large number of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. The Ring of Fire is home to 452 volcanoes and 75% of the world's.
