User: Volcanoes are usually formed as a result of

Weegy: Volcanoes are formed by the accumulation of magma (molten rock that forms below a planet's surface). Magma can erupt through volcanic vents. As magma forms, it rises and accumulates in underground reservoirs before it erupts onto the surface. [ With each eruption, the erupted material adds another layer to the growing volcano. ]

Volcanoes are usually formed as a result of magma accumulating under pressure at destructive (compressional) and constructive (tensional) plate boundaries and then suddenly being erupted due to plate movement.
