What is a divergent boundary? Convergent boundary? Transform boundary? What is subduction? What is the “Subduction zone?” Guide
Convergent Boundaries Boundaries between two plates that are colliding There are 3 types…
Type 1 Ocean plate colliding with a less dense continental plate Subduction Zone: where the more dense plate slides under the less dense plate VOLCANOES occur at subduction zones Such as the Himalaya Range.
Type 3 A continental plate colliding with another continental plate Have Collision Zones: a place where folded and thrust faulted mountains form. They have similar densities, as a result they buckle when they collide piling up into high mountain ranges.
