Volcanoes can be created two ways:Convergent/Divergent Plate Boundaries;and Geothermal Hot Spots.Geothermal Hot Spots are points where the mantle is thinner than usual, allowing for a more direct transfer of energy from the Earth's inner core to the crust. This melts areas of the crust, and creates volcanoes. Two commonly known "Hot Spot Volcanoes" are the Hawaiian Islands and Mnt. St. Helens in Washington.
