FC: Plate Boundaries For Dummies | By: Logan Reynolds 2nd Hour
1: 3 Plate Boundaries: Convergent, Divergent, Transform
2: Convergent Boundary: Continental Vs. Oceanic, Oceanic Vs. Oceanic, Continental Vs. Continental,
4: Convergent Boundary | Oceanic | A boundary that forms when two tectonic plates collide. | When a oceanic plate and a continental plate collide the oceanic plate is denser so it sinks to be recycled and remelted. | Creates Reverse Faults
5: Convergent Boundary | Continental | The continental plate is thicker but less dense so it slides above the oceanic plate. | Also creates Folded and Volcanic mountains
6: Convergent Boundary | Oceanic | When a oceanic plate and another oceanic plate collide the most dense plate sinks.
7: Convergent Boundary | Oceanic | The less dense plate slides on top of the sinking plate and creates a trench.
8: Convergent Boundary | Continental | When two continental plates collide, both of the plates rise.
9: Convergent Boundary | Continental | This is called uplift. This creates a mountain, It also could create a volcano.
10: Divergent Boundary
12: Divergent Boundary | Rift Zone | A boundary that forms when two tectonic plates separate. | Rift zones form when two plates separate, causing them to stretch.
13: New Sea Floor | Divergent Boundary | Sea floor is made by a under water volcano and when it makes new sea floor, the old sea floor spreads out. | Creates Normal Faults and Fault-Block mountains
14: Transform Boundary
16: Transform Boundary | A boundary that forms when two tectonic plates slide past each other horizontally. | When two plates slide past each other they cause earthquakes.
17: Transform Boundary | Transform plate motion causes Strike-Slip faults.
