Divergent Plate Boundaries

Teaching Plate Tectonics Teaching Plate Tectonics Earth's Internal Structure Divergent Boundary Convergent Boundary Transform Boundary Tectonic Features Map Divergent plate boundaries are locations where plates are moving away from one another. This occurs above rising convection currents. The rising current pushes up on the bottom of the lithosphere, lifting it and flowing laterally beneath it.

Convergent Plate Boundaries

Teaching Plate Tectonics Teaching Plate Tectonics Earth's Internal Structure Divergent Boundary Convergent Boundary Transform Boundary Tectonic Features Map Convergent plate boundaries are locations where lithospheric plates are moving towards one another. The plate collisions that occur in these areas can produce earthquakes, volcanic activity, and crustal deformation.
