Volcanoes form
where a
convergent
boundary occurs
between oceanic
crust and
continental crust.
Volcanoes also form where a convergent
boundary occurs between oceanic crust and
oceanic crust.
Aleutian islands of Alaska are volcanoes
formed by oceanic crust converging with
oceanic crust
Following volcanic islands in the Pacific Ocean
can show us where oceanic crust is being
subducted by oceanic crust.
Oceanic crust diverging from oceanic crust
