Question: Why are there so many inactive volcanoes ?

  1. good question!

    volcanoes aren’t always active as they need to be under the right conditions to erupt. many volcanoes are now extinct or dormant, which means that they wont erupt anymore as their magma source has ended or moved away. These volcanoes stay at the surface like mountains but they don;t erupt anymore. they will only disappear when they are eroded away. but as these die, there are new volcanoes taking their place in other locations!
