3 type of plate Boundaries

Convergent Boundary

Divergent Boundary

Transform Boundary

PlateBoundaries

Oceanic - Continental

Oceanic - Oceanic

  • Motion of the plate
    • Collision between oceanic crust and contiental crust. The oceanic plate is denser, so it subducts.
  • Seismic & Volcanic activity
    • earthquakes around 0 - 700 km
    • volcanic arcs present
  • Geochronology & Graphic features
    • older plate 67-180 million years subducts
    • seafloor is very deep -2500 - 800 meaters
  • Example
    • Andes Mountains

  • Motion of the plate
    • Collision between two plates composed of oceanic lithosphere. The older, denser oceanic plate will subduct.
  • Seismic and volcanic acitivity
    • Activity along subduction zone 300-700 km
    • sparse volcanic activity
  • Geochronology and Graphic features
    • subducting plate creates a trench 33.1 million yrs old
    • seafloor is very deep -2500 -(-10400) meaters
  • Example
    • Aleutian Islands

Continental - Continental

  • Motion of the plate
    • Collision between two continental plates. The plates aren't dense enough so they collide and push upwards .
  • Seismic & Volcanic activity
    • Intense seismic activity 0-700 km
    • sparse volcanic activity
  • Geochronology & Gragraphic features
    • large mountain ranges 800-8000 meeters
    • no seafloor
  • Example
    • Himalaya Mountains

Convergent Boundaries

Oceanic - Oceanic

  • Motion of the plate
    • Two tectonic plates move away from each other.
  • Seismic & Volcanic activity
    • frequent seismic activty
    • high concentration of volcanoes
  • Geochronology & Gragraphic features
    • seafloor age increases as you move away
    • mid-ocean ridges between -2500 - 800 meaters
  • Example
    • Mid Atlantic Ridge

Divergent Boundaries

VS

Oceanic - Continental

Oceanic - Oceanic

  • Motion of the plate
    • Two tectonic plates move past one another.
  • Seismic & Volcanic activity
    • frequent earhtquakes 0-700km
    • not much volcanic activity
  • Geochronology & Graphic features
    • seafloor is younger 0-68 million years old
    • oceaninc and continental side have different depths
  • Example
    • Galapagos Rise

  • Motion of the plate
    • Two tectonic plates move past one another.
  • Seismic & Volcanic activity
    • frequent earthquakes
    • not much volcanic activity
  • Geochronology & Gragraphic features
    • seafloor is usually newer 0-20.1 million years old
    • elevation depth is between -2500-800 meaters
  • Example
    • Nazca Plate & Pacific Plate

Continental - Continental

  • Motion of the plate
    • Two tectonic plates move past one another.
  • Seismic & Volcanic activity
    • heavily concentrated earthquakes from 0 - 700 km
    • sparse volcanic activity
  • Geochronology & Gragraphic features
    • no seafloor
    • nigh mountain ranges 800-8000 meaters
  • Example
    • San Andreas Fault
