Boundaries By:Aneesia s. :p

Convergent Boundary -

Divergent boundaries occur along spreading centers where plates are moving apart and new crust is created by magma pushing up from the mantle.

Tensional Stress. Tensional stress, sometimes known as extensional stress, stretches and pulls rocks apart.Divergent boundaries form MID-OCEAN RIDGES.

Most volcanoes occur in the basin of the Pacific Ocean, also known as the Ring of Fire.The west coast of South America is a convergent boundary between the Nazca plate and the South American plate.

in the west coast of south america the plates collided and made mountains and Mountain RIdges.The 2010 Chile earthquake occurred off the coast of central Chile on Saturday, 27 February at 03:34 local time (06:34 UTC), having a magnitude of 8.8 on the moment magnitude scale, with intense shaking lasting for about three minutes.

where plates are moving apart and new crust is created by magma pushing up from the mantle.Tension is the major type of stress at divergent plate boundaries.Divergent boundaries can form Rift valleys.

As you can see the road is pulled apart by tension.This Quake killed 8 people injuring more than 200 and damaging the main airport and about 1,000 houses.
Tranform Boundary

The stress of a transform plate boundary, Shear stress where two plates are moving past each other either in opposite directions or both in the same direction but at different speeds.

A swarm of earthquakes took on San Andreas,there aren't any landforms this boundary can create because it does not make or destroy.

A strong earthquake has struck off the coast of California close to the San Andreas fault. The 6.5 magnitude hit at around 6.50am local time on Thursday 8 December.

This earthquake caused for some animals to die but this quake caused for there to be no water where this fish is.
These are the homes it hit...
