Landforms associated with plate
boundaries
Praag Dogra
Collision plate boundary
 Also known as convergent or destructive boundaries
 They see the formation of fold mountains, anticlines and synclines (geosynclines)
 For example, on the Indo-Australian into the Eurasian plate
Subduction plate boundary
 Also known as convergent boundaries e.g. Nazca and S. American
 These also see the formation of fold mountains
 Also acid lava volcanoes
 Island arcs
 And Ocean trenches
 Accretionary prisms can also be found on an oceanic to oceanic convergence
Conservative plate boundary
 Also known as Strike-slip or transform faults
 They have medium sized mountains
 Also transform faults perpendicular to the main fault
 For example the San Andreas fault line
Constructive plate boundary
 Also known as divergent
 They see mid-ocean ridges
 Fissure type eruptions
 Transform faults too
 For example the Indian Mid-Ocean Ridge
