Mountains cover one-fifth of the earth’s land surface, and occur in 75% of the world’s countries. Some of the highest mountains are at the bottom of the sea. Hawaii is at the top of a volcanic mountain in the Pacific Ocean. More than half the mountain is below water.

Earthquakes occur when two plates pushing past each other cause a fracture in the Earth’s crust.
