Plate Tectonics

This book is all about the theory of Plate Tectonics.


4. Explanation

Divergent Boundaries cause spreading ridges.

Example: Iceland is an example of continental drifting. It has a divergent plate boundary running through its middle.

Volcanoes form from Divergent Plate Boundaries.


There are three types (collisions) of Convergent Boundaries.

- Continent to Continent

- Continent to Oceanic Crust

- Ocean to Ocean

These are all collisions.


Transform Boundaries may cause faults or cracks in the ground.

Example: San Andreas Fault, it is caused by Transform Plate Boundaries.
