The most difficult natural disasters riddles A list of natural disasters related questions that are most often answered incorrectly Volcanoes quiz What is the typical source of pressure buildup inside a volcano?Degassing of magma. The whole process begins when hot magma is lifted by convection to the magma chamber. As the pressure in the chamber is lower than deep in Earth's crust, the gas starts to release. Since degassed magma has lower density, it may then sink and be replaced with new one. This process may build up huge pressure of gases, eventually causing explosion.hard 40% centrifugal force of Earth rotationcentrifugal force of Earth rotation20%magma convectionmagma convection36%boiling of rainwaterboiling of rainwater3%degassing of magmadegassing of magma40%Created by: Sumit Tamang.
