Plate Boundaries By Elizeth Moncada

The Convergent Plate Boundary happens when two plates move toward each other, The type of stress that happens in a Convergent Boundary is Compression. Convergent boundaries create Volcanic Mountains and sometimes islands when its continental plate and continental plate, when an oceanic plate and continental plate collide this can create trenches, when oceanic plate and a oceanic plate collide it forms volcanoes, earthquakes and it could lead to tsunami's a while this process is occurring earthquakes happen. When an ocean and an ocean plate collide this can create trenches, volcanoes, earthquakes, and tsunami's

The image below is an example of what a convergent boundary can create its called the Himalaya Mountains. it is in Asia, separating the Indian subcontinent from the Tibetan Plateau. it one of the tallest mountains in the world,

The Mid-Atlantic Ridge is located in the center of the Atlantic Ocean, it was founded in 1872 by a team of scientists led by Charles Wyville Thomson

Divergent Boundaries are when two plates move away from each other, the type of stress that happens here is tension, when two continental plates part move away from each other this can create a volcanoes. when a continental and oceanic plate collide new crust is formed and small volcanoes can be created. when two oceanic plates move away from each other this creates new crust and ocean ridges
Mid-Atlantic Ridge
Transform Boundary is when two plates side past each other, the type of stress that would happen here would be shear. When two continental plate slide past each other this creates earthquakes. When a continental and oceanic plates slide past each other this also creates earthquakes as well as when two oceanic plates slide past each other.

The San Andreas fault was founded between 1957 and 1906, It is located in California
