Volcanoes can also form where there is stretching of the Earth's crust and where the crust grows thin (called "non-hotspot intraplate volcanism"), such as in the African Rift Valley, the European Rhine Graben with its Eifel volcanoes, the Wells Gray-Clearwater Volcanic Field and the Rio Grande Rift in North America.
In 1989 the Voyager 2 spacecraft observed cryovolcanos (ice volcanoes) on Triton, a moon of Neptune, and in 2005 the Cassini-Huygens probe photographed fountains of frozen particles erupting from Enceladus, a moon of Saturn.
Volcano is thought to derive from Vulcano, a volcanic island in the Aeolian Islands of Italy whose name in turn originates from Vulcan, the name of a god of fire in Roman mythology.

Although earthquakes and catastrophic eruptions are a constant risk, the negative impact of Java's volcanoes is balanced by benefits to human activity.
Volcanoes are a major contributor to this fertility of land and high rainfall rate on parts of the island.
This list is of volcanoes from the west of Java to the east.

 Volcano - Facts, Information, and Encyclopedia Reference article
A volcano is a geological landform (usually a mountain) where magma (rock of the Earth's interior made molten or liquid by extremely high temperatures along with a reduction in pressure and/or the introduction of water or other volatiles) erupts through the surface of the planet.
Some volcanoes consist of a crater alone, with scarcely any mountain at all; but in the majority of cases the crater is situated on top of a mountain (the volcano), which can tower to an enormous height.
Volcanoes that terminate in a principal crater are usually of a conical form.

Volcanoes can also form where there is stretching of the Earth's crust and where the crust grows thin (called "non-hotspot intraplate volcanism"), such as in the African Rift Valley or the European Rhine Graben with its Eifel volcanoes).
Active mud volcanoes tend to involve temperatures much lower than those of igneous volcanoes, except when a mud volcano is actually a vent of an igneous volcano.
A popular way of classifying magmatic volcanoes goes by their frequency of eruption, with those that erupt regularly called active, those that have erupted in historical times but are now quiet called dormant, and those that have not erupted in historical times called extinct.

The volcanoes in this belt formed as a result of melting of the crust related to the subduction of the Juan de Fuca oceanic plate beneath the west coast of North America.
These volcanos are the result of subduction of the Juan de Fuca tectonic plate beneath the North American tectonic plate; the plates meet just seaward of the west coast of Vancouver island.
The volcanoes of the Garibaldi Volcanic Belt generally are stratovolcanoes typical of subduction zones, and include Mt. Garibaldi, Mt. Cayley and Mt. Meager.

Composite volcanoes or stratovolcanoes, such as Mount St. Helens and Mount Fuji, are graceful, solitary, often quite high and covered in snow or ice and are comprised of innumerable layers of rubble and debris from previous eruptions.
Shield volcanoes are broad and have low slopes and are constructed of solidified basaltic lava that was originally in a highly fluid state.
Volcanoes as noted form underwater and in fact most may be located deep in the sea; one estimate put the number at one million volcanoes with 75,000 rising to over 1 kilometer from the seafloor.
