Despite the undesirable effects, volcanic activities have some benefits to them. Some of the benefits include

Geothermal Energy

Hot rocks underground can be used to heat up water turning it into steam which can be used to generate electricity. Countries such as New Zealand utilize geysers for electrical generation


Solidified magma and volcanic bombs are deposited and forms precious minerals.

Fertile Soils

Volcanic debris provide nutrient rich soils which can be used for agriculture.

Tourist Sites

Spectacular and picturesque sceneries created by volcanoes e.g cones, geysers, mud volcanoes provide useful tourist sites.
