As magma rises toward the suface, what happens to the crust about it?

    You probably already know the answer to this one, as the rising magma pushes the crust up and out of the ground, forming a volcano. Any rock not melted by the magma is pushed out of the way, causing the earth to rise and form the various familiar tops of volcanos, which are then shaped by the flow of magma (now lava) down the side. Although less extreme cases may merely cause fissures in the earth, every volcanoe once started as magma lurking beneath the crust, waiting to rise.

    I hope this helped!
