There are complex processes happening beneath the surface of the Earth at all times that cause phenomena such as volcanoes, earthquakes, and tsunamis.

Hosts Adrian Hopkins and Haleigh Hunt delve deeper into this topic, and Jared Hottenstein does demonstrations to explain what is happening beneath the surface.
