Tectonic Plate Boundaries By: Jazmin Gonzalez

Divergent Boundaries

The divergent boundary is also known as the constructive boundary

It is a linear feature that goes between 2 tectonic plates that are moving the opposite direction from each other

The stress that happens in the divergent boundary is when the plates move away from each other

Convergent Boundary

Convergent boundary is also known as the destructive plate boundary

The plates are moving towards each other and colide

Andes Mountain Range of western South America is an example of a convergent boundary

Transform Boundary

The plates aren't destructive so they move horizontal from each other

The stress on a transform boundary is they move right past each other

As the plates move past these form strong earthquakes
