At a divergent boundary the plates are moving away from each other.

The plates are moving apart

The stress of divergent is tension.

some divergent landforms are valleys and canyons.

some real live events that divergent landforms happened because of this like the kimijara motains.


the stress of the convergent is compression

one of the convergent landforms are trenches

the convergent plates move away from each other

one divergent event was the Magnitude 5.6 earthquake 38 km from Joshimath, Uttarakhand, India ยท Feb 6, 11:03 AM that happendand caused alot of fires and house damage.


the trasform boundarys slide past each other.

the trasform stress is shere.

a trasform boundary landform is a form of earthquakes.

one of the most famouse trasform is The San Andreas Fault is a continental transform fault that extends roughly 800 miles through California. It forms the tectonic boundary between the Pacific Plate and the North American Plate, and its motion is right-lateral strike-slip
