The type and abundance of volcanoes on the surface of a planet can provide evidence about the level of geologic.

Yet it is likely that even in such cases the disturbance is the result of a sudden slip of rock masses adjacent to the volcano and the consequent release of elastic strain energy. The stored energy, however, may in part be of hydrodynamic origin due to.
