Transcript of Plate Boundaries

Divergent Boundary Divergent Boundary is a linear feature that exists between two tectonics plates that are moving away from each other. Most active Divergent Boundaries occur between oceanic and exist as mid oceanic ridges. There are 3 different types of plate boundaries: Divergent, Convergent, and Transform Fault Boundary. Each move in completely different directions.
Divergent Boundary occurs when two plates diverge [move apart], while Convergent Boundary occurs when two plates converge [move together], and Transform Fault Boundary occurs when two plates slide next to each other in opposite directions. The Three Plate Boundaries Transform boundary is known as a conservative plate boundary, since this fault neither create nor destroy lithosphere. Transform Boundary Convergent Boundary The tallest and deepest formation in the Earth's crust is Convergent Boundary.

Transform faults are closely related to transcurrent faults; this type of fault is strike-slip or side-to-side in movement. Transform faults end at the junction of another plate boundary or fault type.
