Plate Boundaries by oliver fowler

Convergent Boundary

At Convergent Boundaries the plates move towards each other.

An example of Convergent Boundaries is the Marianas Trench. The Marianas Trench and Trench's in general are formed when the oceanic plate goes under the continental plate.

Divergent Boundary

At Divergent Boundaries the plates move away from each other

An example of this is literally the entire country of Iceland. Iceland sits on top of two different plates so when they split the island and country of Iceland splits a little more as shown as the backdrop

Transform Boundary

A Transform Boundary is when to plates practically scrape each other and move up or down.

An example of a Transform Boundary is the San Andreas Fault in California. In the picture shown here you can tell that the plates are moving next to judging from the practically perfect line.
