Indian plate (continental crust) running into Eurasian plate (continental crust) Indian plate  Eurasian plate
South American plate (continental crust) running into Nazca plate (oceanic crust)
View from space
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.
