What is Volcanism
WHAT IS VOLCANISM?
Volcanism is a geological term used to describe the complete range of volcanic eruptions, volcanic landforms, and volcanic materials. Volcanism is driven by the internal heat of a planet and provides evidence of the way in which heat is released from that planet. The type and abundance of volcanoes on the surface of a planet can provide evidence about the level of geologic activity of the planet.
