Plate Boundaries Corbin Wise

CONVERGENT

THIS TYPE OF BOUNDARY IS CAUSED BY TWO PLATES PUSHING AGAINST ONE ANOTHER. THERE IS TENSIONAL STRESS ON THESE PLATES.

THIS CREATES OCEAN RIDGES, MOUNTAINS, AND VOLCANOES

THIS KIND OF PLATE BOUNDARY IS FORMED IN PLACES LIKE:

1) OCEAN RIDGES

2) THE HIMALAYAS

3) ICELAND

DIVERGENT

A DIVERGENT BOUNDARY IS WHEN THERE ARE TWO PLATES ARE PULLING APART. IT CAUSES COMPRESSIVE STRESS. IT ALSO CREATES MOUNTAINS, VOLCANOES AND LARGE OCEAN RIDGES.

TRANSFORM

TWO PLATES RUBBING TOGETHER AS IF THE EARTH HAS COLD FINGERS.

A TRANSFORM BOUNDARY CAUSES LOTS OF SHEAR STRESS AND CAN CREATE LARGE EARTHQUAKES.
THe ALPINE FAULT IS PARTIALLY WHY THE ALPINES WERE FORMED.
THE TRANSFORM BOUNDARY OCCURS IN CALIFORNIA, THE ALPINES, AND BETWEEN S. AMERICA, AND AFRICA
