Azores Islands, Atlantic ocean

The incredible volcanoes of Terceira Island (The Azores-Portugal).

The Azores is a volcanic archipelago (nine islands) in the Northern Atlantic Ocean. The archipelago lies on the lateral branch of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge near the junction of three major tectonic plates; the North American Plate, the Eurasian Plate and the African Plate.This unique location causes the area to have ridge-hotspot interaction with a variation of volcanic processes.
