You will be creating a table for your notes on plate boundaries. You may cut and paste the table below to get started
Please cut and paste the following notes above your table:
Convergent: Coming together
Divergent: Coming apart
Transform: Moving parallel to each other
Oceanic crust: Thin but dense (heavy)
Continental crust: Thick but less dense (light)
Subduction: To move under another plate down into mantle

Oceanic-oceanic divergent

Oceanic-oceanic convergent
Two oceanic plates move towards each other. One is pushed down into the asthenosphere and begins to melt.



Continental-continental divergent



Great african rift valley. Baikal rift zone. Red Sea rift
Continental-continental Convergent

Neither plate is able to be pushed down into the aesthesnosphere. There is a creation of very high mountains, folds in the crust, and an elevated plateau.
