Plate Boundary Project By talon gilbert

DIVERGENT BOUNDARIES.

DIVERGENT BOUNDARIES

A DIVERGENT BOUNDARY IS A WHEN PLATES ARE PULLED APART BY TENSION.The plates being pulled apart causes earthquakes, makes volcanos ,and makes a ridge in most cases.A great example is when the mid atlantic ridge was formed by this as well as the east pacific rise.

CONVERGENT BOUNDARIES ARE ONES THAT MOVE INTO EACH OTHER THIS USES A FORCE CALLED COMPRESSION. A great example of these boundaries are subduction zones and mountains ranges. The most notable one for me is the alps and the himalayas.

This is a picture of a TRANSFORM BOUNDARY a transform these boundaries use SHEAR force. A great example of this is the san andreas fault in the USA. this makes faults mostly and causes earthquakes.
