Tectonic plates By Jeffrey Murphy jr

Divergent boundaries

Divergent boundaries happen when two tectonics plates move away from each other which bring magma from the Earth's Mantle to come to the surface of earth.

Divergent boundaries happen when two tectonics plates move away from each other which bring magma from the Earth's Mantle to come to the surface of earth.
At divergent boundaries new crust is created as two or more plates pull away from each other. Oceans are born and grow wider where plates diverge or pull apart when a diverging boundary occurs on land a rift or separation will arise and over time that mass of land will break apart into distinct land masses and the surrounding water will fill the space between them.
This is convergent boundaries Convergent Boundaries
Places where plates crash or crunch together are called convergent boundaries. Plates only move a few centimeters each year, so collisions are very slow and last millions of years.

Convergent Boundaries form deep trenches,EarthQuakes,Subduction,Island arcs,Submarine mountain ranges, and fault lines are formed when convergent boundaries form

The biggest volcanic eruption in human history occurred in 1815 on the Indonesian island of Sumbawa, leaving 100,000 dead. There was between six months and three years of steaming and small eruptions after the initial one. Because of the 400 million ton cloud of gas the volcano created, the earth began to cool and 1816 became known as "The Year Without Summer" because of the low temperatures, which killed crops and led to mass starvation.
Transform Boundaries
Transform boundaries happen when two tectonic plates slide near each other.Causing rivers to form and earthquakes to happen.
As the plates rub against each other, huge stresses are set up that can cause portions of the rock to break, resulting in earthquakes. Places where these breaks occur are called faults. A well-known example of a transform plate boundary is the San Andreas Fault in California.
