Plate Boundary Project By Luke cramer

A convergent Boundary is when two plates ram into each other. This space view of the Himalayas is a great example of Continental-Continental Convergent Boundary. The mountains were slowly piled on top of each other as the plates moved together.

The Rocky Mountains were formed over the course of Millions of years. They are a result of a convergent boundary.

The Ural Mountains, in Russia, were made when the Northern Baltic Plate smashed into the Siberian plate. The Urals now stretch from Northern Russia all the way to Kazakhstan.

This Pass, In Sweden, is the result of a divergent boundary. A divergent boundary is when two plates move away from each other and either cause a rift valley or an oceanic ridge.

A transform boundary is when two plates slide back and forth on each other.

That San Andreas Fault is a god example of a transform boundary.

This picture shows the movement that a transform boundary makes.
