17 Convergent Boundaries There are three different types of convergent boundariesThese depend on what type of plates come togetherOceanic-continentalOceanic-oceanicContinental-continental
18 Oceanic-ContinentalThe oceanic plate subducts beneath the continental plateEg. Coastal BCThe Juan de Fuca (oceanic) plate subducts under the North American (continental) plateThis causes coastal mountains and land volcanoes
19 Oceanic-Oceanic One plate will subduct beneath another Volcanic activity and possible islands form
20 Continental-Continental Plates are not likely to subductThey push on each other and form mountains
