Do volcanoes produce new land?



  1. 0 Votes

    Yes, volcanoes tend to produce new land when their lava cools, but they can only produce land where there is not already land, i.e. an ocean setting. Typically basaltic volcanoes produce more land because their eruptions are not explosive and are in marine settings. An example of volcanoes creating new land is the island chain of Hawaii, which was all created by volcanoes.
