San Andreas Fault
The San Andreas fault was created by a transform boundary. A transform boundary is when two plates that slide past each other creating either a linear valley along a boundary where rock has been formed or stream beds which have been split in half. The San Andreas fault is a length of 810 miles between California and the United States. This fault forms the tectonic boundary between The Pacific plate and the South American Plate.The famous and by far the most strongest earthquake was placed along the San Andreas fault, which was present in 1906 and that hit San Francisco.
Andes Mountains
Is the longest mountain ranges in the world. It is best known for its volcanoes. The Andes mountains is a convergent boundary meaning the mountain range was formed when to plates moved towards each other pushing one on top, therefore creating a mountain or in some cases a volcano. In this case it was the collision of the Pacific plate beneath the South American plate, which invovled into the Andes Mountain. It is located along entire Western coast of South America and it is about 4,500m long.
East African Rift Valley
Is one of the geologic wonders of the world. The East African rift valley is a divergent boundary, which is when the plates tectonics forces are splitting trying to create new plates. 35 million years ago when the African and Arabian plate split it created the Great African Rift Valley. "The lake Albert rift" which contains the East African great lakes and a Eastern branch which divides Kenya south and north have been called the East African rift valley.

Mt. Vesuvius is the only active volcano in Europe. It was created when the African and Eurasian plate moved towards each other, therefore creating the volcano. Mt. Vesuvius is a convergent plate boundary. It is located on Italy's west cost, it overlooks the city of Naples. Which sits in the creator of ancient Somma Volcano. Mt. Vesuvius is famous for its eruption in 79AD which destructed the Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum. The eruption killed
It is a mid- ocean ridge, which is located along the floor of the Atlantic Ocean It is a divergent boundary. The Mid-Atlantic ridge separates the Eurasian Plate and North American Plate.
