Divergent Plate Boundaries

This is the divergent oceanic plate boundary

These plates spread apart causing tension while it creates mid ocean ridges like the mid atlantic ridge.

This is a divergent continental plate boundary

These plates move apart causing tension which crates continental rifts like the East African Rift Valley.

This is a convergent continental boundary

These plates move together causing compression which creates earthquakes and mountain ranges just like the himalayan mountains.

This a convergent subduction zone

These plates go under and on top of each other causing compression which creates oceanic trenches just like the marinas trench.
