Fire-eater volcanoes

The origins of volcanism lie in the twelve tectonic plates of the earth's crust... plates which move slowly as if on a conveyor belt above molten magma...
These movements, whether pulling the plates towards each other or pushing them away, provoke the accumulation of magmatic gases and molten rocks... and lava erupts!
Told as a story this document explains the mechanics of volcanoes.
