Usually, only mafic flows will erupt as phoehoe, since they often erupt at higher temperatures or have the proper chemical make-up to allow them to flow with greater fluidity.

Fissure vents Main article: Fissure vent Volcanic fissure vents are flat, linear fractures through which lava emerges. This effect, together with increased stratospheric chlorine levels from chlorofluorocarbon pollution, generates chlorine monoxide (ClO which destroys ozone (O3). Erupting volcanoes can pose many hazards, not only in the immediate vicinity of the eruption. And they claimed nearly 30,000 lives on the Caribbean island of Martinique in 1902.

Convergent plate boundaries Main article: Convergent boundary Subduction zones are places where two plates, usually an oceanic plate and a continental plate, collide. 22 According to the Toba catastrophe theory to which some anthropologists and archeologists subscribe, it had global consequences, 23 killing most humans then alive and creating a population bottleneck that affected the genetic inheritance of all humans today.
