Tectonic Plates

Convergent Boundaries

A subduction zone where an oceanic plate goes under neath another oceanic plate are the same as a continent-ocean subduction zone. An ocean trench marks the location where the plate is pushed down into the mantle. In this case, the line of volcanoes that grows on the upper oceanic plate is an island arc.

Divergent Boundaries

The Divergent boundary is is a feature that is between two tectonic plates that are moving away from each other. In the Divergent Boundary there is the Ocean Ridge-which is a long narrow under water mountain range And the Rift- is a crack, split, or break in the land.

transform boundaries

are locations where two plates slide past one another.
