The place where two plates move
apart or diverge is called a divergent
boundary.
Can you explain this diagram!?

divergent boundary is called a mid ocean
ridge.

  2. 2. Can you explain this diagram!?
  3. 3. This is a model of sea floor spreading at a divergent boundary is called a mid ocean ridge.
  4. 4. Oceanic crust diverging from oceanic crust
  5. 5. : www.ocean.udel.edu Did you know that the Earth’s longest mountain range is underwater and is called the mid-ocean ridge? The Mid-Ocean Ridge system, shown above snaking its way between the continents, is more than 56,000 kilometers (35,000 mi) long. It circles the earth like the stitching on a baseball!
