The Pacific Ring of Fire seems to be active today. The Ring of Fire is a seismic belt consisting of volcanoes and seismic activities. It spans approximately 40,000 km in length and reaches widths of up to 500 km, encircling the majority of the Pacific Ocean. Within the Ring of Fire, there can be found between 750 and 915 active or dormant volcanoes, which account for around two-thirds of the global number.
