  1. 1. Plate Boundaries<br />
  2. 2. Types of Plate Boundaries<br />Convergent Boundaries<br />Divergent Boundaries<br />Transform Fault Boundaries<br />
  3. 3. Convergent Boundaries<br />Convergent Boundaries exist when two plates are colliding together. There are three different types of Convergent Boundaries: <br />Ocean:Ocean<br />Ocean:Continent<br />Continent:Continent. <br />Exists when two plates are being pushed together.<br />
  4. 4. Ocean: Ocean Convergent<br />Two oceanic plates colliding, one has to give and one goes down as the other one rises up. Most have the same density.<br />Creates volcanoes and earthquakes caused by the faults.<br />
  5. 5. Example<br />The Ring of Fire<br />
  6. 6. Ocean:Continent Convergent<br />Oceanic crust will always go down and the continental crust will always go up, because the continental crust is more dense.<br />Earthquakes are caused by the trenches.<br />Partial melting of oceanic and continental crust cause explosive magma.<br />
  7. 7. Example<br />The Mariana Trench – Underwater Volcanoes!<br />
  8. 8. Continent:Continent Convergent<br />Causes a lot of faults by the rocks pushing together. <br />Potential for earthquake activity.<br />No volcanoes because there is no subduction zone.<br />Enormous mountain ranges.<br />
  9. 9. Example<br />East Africa<br />
  10. 10. Divergent Plate Boundaries<br />Exists when two plats are being pulled apart from one another.<br />There are two different types of Divergent Plate Boundaries:<br />Ocean:Ocean<br />Continent:Continent<br />
  11. 11. Ocean:Ocean Divergent<br />New crust is being made.<br />Underwater mountains and volcanoes exist.<br />Also called a spreading center, the further away from the spreading center, the older the crust.<br />
  12. 12. Example<br />Mid Atlantic Ridge<br />
  13. 13. Continent:Continent Divergent<br />When a continental crust is pulled apart, it causes a rift valley.<br />Not making any new crust.<br />
  14. 14. Example<br />The Appalachian Mountains<br />
  15. 15. Transform Fault Boundary<br />Exists when two plates are sliding past one another.<br />There are two types of Transform Fault Boundaries:<br />Ocean:Ocean<br />Continent:Continent<br />
  16. 16. Ocean:Ocean or Continent:Continet Transform Fault<br />Squeezed in different directions.<br />As they move, earthquakes happen. They can be along side any other plate boundary.<br />
  17. 17. Example<br />The San Andreas Fault<br />
  18. 18. Which Plate Boundaries Cause Volcanoes?<br />
  19. 19. Ocean:Ocean Convergent<br />Ocean:Continent Convergent<br />Ocean:Ocean Divergent<br />
