HPU NCS2200 plate boundary types

  1. 1. Plate boundary types • Divergent Plates – Plates move away from each other – Crust is created – Mid ocean ridge – rift valleys • Convergent Plates – Plates move toward each other – Crust is destroyed • Two types – Subduction » Oceanic-oceanic » Oceanic-continental – Mountain Building » Continental-continental • Transform Plates – Plates slide past each other in opposite direction • Crust is neither created nor destroyed
  2. 2. Tectonic Plate Boundaries
  3. 3. Pacific Ocean boundaries divergent subduction subduction
  4. 4. Convergent Plate zones • Ocean-Continental Subduction zone – Crust is destroyed – Ocean trench – Volcanic arc • Continental- Continental boundary – Mountains are built – Crust is destroyed
  5. 5. Parts of Subduction zone Trench Ocean crust Lithosphere Subduction zone Volcanic arc
  6. 6. Tectonic Plates
  7. 7. Ring of Fire “ring” around pacific ocean that shows the areas of the greatest volcanic And earthquake activity in the world. Each dot is a volcanic or earthquake site
