Plate boundaries By trinity Gillespie

Divergent boundaries-

A divergent boundary is a linear feature that is between two tectonic plates that are moving away from each other. (As shown in the image above)

Rift Valley-

Rift valley is a excellent example of a landform that was formed by a divergent plate boundary.
In the image above is a diagram of how "rift valley was formed".
The mid ocean ridge is a underwater mountain range that was formed by a divergent boundary.It was discovered in the 1950's.

Convergant boundaries.

A convergent boundary is also known as a distractive boundary.

A convergent boundary is where two or more tectonic plates move toward one another and collide.

shear stress is the stress that causes the boundary to move.

Transform boundaries.

Transform plate boundary is a type of fault whose relative motion is predominantly horizontal.

shear stress is the stress that causes the transform plates to move.

These types of boundaries are mostly knew for there strong earthquakes, and as well as volcanic mountains and islands.
