Transcript of Plate Tectonics
The first one is when two continental plates move toward each other.
The second one called a continental- oceanic convergent plate when a oceanic plate moves under a continental plate, and this creates a subduction zone. Volcanoes are the result of converging plates. When the oceanic plate moves under a continental plate (creating a subduction zone) the magma/ lava oozes out making a volcano. This is when two plates slide past each other.This makes a lot of friction. The friction impact may be so great, and that is what creates the earthquakes that we feel. (top view) side view This is created at a divergent boundary. A mid ocean ridge is an underwater mountain range. This happens because the convection currents rise in the mantle beneath the mantle. when the plates move away from each other the magma oozes out of the cracks making a ocean ridge. A trench is formed when one plate hits another plate. Trenches happen at a Subduction Zone. Trenches are formed in a convergent boundary. Volcano Thanks For Watching! Trench earthquake P.S.
