Locations of the 422 explosive eruptions with VEI ≥3 since ad 1850 to 2009, analysed along main subduction zones (red lines). Circles and triangles represent volcanoes located in E (or NE)- and W (or SW)-directed subduction zones, respectively. Colours are related to the year of the eruptions. Blue lines represent plate boundaries (DeMets et al. 2010). Map generated with the Generic Mapping Tools (the Generic Mapping Tools available online at
