How do mountains grow underwater? Why does the "Ring of Fire" feature so many volcanoes? Why might the island of Surtsey soon disappear? This series explores the causes and effects that shape our world. From the underwater volcanoes that sprout into islands, to the rushing waterfalls that spark electric currents, this series demonstrates how both natural and man-made phenomena occur.
