Types of Plate Boundaries © Copyright M. J. Krech. All rights reserved.
There are four types of Plate Boundaries.
The first type of plate boundary is called Divergent. Divergent means: moving apart.
The Mid-Atlantic Ridge is an example of a Divergent Plate Boundary :
Another example of a Divergent Plate Boundary is Iceland, which is splitting apart down the middle.
Features of a Divergent Boundary: (1) Rift Valley The Álfagjá Rift Valley in southwest Iceland Most of the world’s rift valleys are on the ocean floor.
(2) Mid-Atlantic Ridge Mountains or Volcanoes
The second type of plate boundary is called Convergent. Convergent means: moving together.
There are two types of Convergent Boundaries. The first is: Convergent - Subduction. In this type of Convergent Boundary, the denser plate subducts under the less dense plate.
Features of a Convergent- SubductionBoundary are: 1.Volcanic Mountain Ranges 2.Trenches
The Andes Mountains are an example of a Volcanic Mountain Chain formed by a Convergent-Subduction Boundary. The Nazca Plate is subducting under the South American Plate, forming the Andes Mtns.
The Mariana Trench is an example of a Trench formed by a Convergent-Subduction Plate Boundary. The Pacific Plate is subducting under the Eurasian Plate.
Another type of Convergent Plate Boundary is the Convergent - Collision Boundary. Two plates of the same density collide and form Folded Mountains.
Features of a Convergent- Collision Boundary are: Folded Mountains
An example of a Convergent-Collision Folded Mountain is the Himalayan Mtns.
India is colliding with the Eurasian continent.
The fourth type of Plate Boundary is the Transform-Sliding Boundary. These plates slide past each other.
The Features of a Transform-Sliding Boundary are: Earthquake Zone or Fault Zone
An example of a Transform-Sliding Plate Boundary is the San Andreas Fault Zone in California.
Views from the air of the San Andreas Fault Zone.
The Mid-Atlantic Ridge also has sliding (transform) boundaries.
The End BONUS: (1) Does your state sit on a Plate Boundary? (2) How do you know?
Major Geological Events Caused by Plate Tectonics.
Types of Plate Boundaries. When 2 plates meet….. 1- They can crash together = ConvergentBoundaryORConvergent BoundaryOR Divergent BoundaryOR2- They can.
Divergent Boundary spreads apart, or divides, making new ocean floor along mid ocean ridges. Convergent Boundary comes together. Ocean crust sinks.

Plate Boundaries Convergent – 2 plates moving towards each other. Subduction Ocean/Ocean Subduction Continent Convergent Divergent – 2 plates moving away.
Scientists identify the boundaries between two plates by the plate movement. There are three types of plate boundaries: 1. Divergent 2. Convergent.
Factors that Cause Tectonic Plate Movement. 1. Gravity Earth’s gravitational force is always pulling objects toward the center of the earth, even the.
Objective: Identify the types of plate boundaries and the land features and geologic events that each feature makes.
