Types of Plate Boundaries

By: Lindsey Miller

Divergent boundary

-also known as a constructive boundary or extensional boundary, a Divergent Boundary is a linear feature that is between two plates that move away from one another.

Transform boundary

- two plates slide past on another, they lack the amazing features of the divergent and convergent boundaries.

Convergent boundary

-also known as a destructive plate boundary, the convergent boundary is a deforming region where fragments of the lithosphere move toward each other and collide.
