Transcript of Plate Boundaries

Students know the principal structures that form at the three different kinds of plate boundaries. Plate Boundaries Convergent Boundaries -Transform Fault Boundaries are mainly formed in the deep ocean sea, and is formed at a zig zag formation Transform-Fault Boundaries Oceanic-Oceanic Convergence -When an oceanic plate pushes into and under a continental plate, the overriding continental plate is lifted up and a mountain range is created. Oceanic-Continental
Convergence Continental-Continental
Convergence Divergent Boundaries - Divergent Boundaries are in between two plates that move apart from each other. - A convergent boundary is a region where two tectonic plates move toward each other and collide. There are three main Plate Boundaries: Divergent boundary, Convergent Boundary,and Transform-Fault Boundary. - Transform Fault Boundaries grind past each other in a horizontal motion. - Divergent boundaries create ridges
or rifts that produce rift valleys. - Divergent boundaries form volcanic islands which occur when the plates move apart to produce gaps which molten lava rises to fill. - When two oceanic plates converge one is usually withdrawed under the other and in the process a deep oceanic trench is formed. - When two continents meet head-on, neither is taken away because the continental rocks are relatively light and, like two colliding icebergs, resist downward motion.
