Japan's plate tectonics and cyclones. Computer artwork showing cyclones (white spirals) travelling over the islands of Japan and the country's underlying tectonic plates. Japan lies in a highly active volcanic zone known as the 'Ring of Fire' and the Japanese islands are situated where at least four different tectonic plates meet; including the Pacific, Eurasian, North American and Philipine Sea plates. The Japan Trench (dark line, top right) under the Pacific Ocean, forms part of the boundary of the Pacific and Eurasian plates. Plate movement and other tectonic activity accounts for Japan's frequent earthquakes and active volcanoes.
