Slide 3

Examples of divergent boundaries

Slide 4

So, we’re making new crust?

Slide 5

Convergent plate boundaries

2 types of crust = 3 possible combinations

  • Oceanic lithosphere meets oceanic lithosphere

  • Oceanic lithosphere meets continental lithosphere

  • Continental lithosphere meets continental lithosphere

Slide 6

Convergent boundaries involving oceanic lithosphere

  • At convergent boundaries oceanic plates are subducted.

  • Subduction is the recycling of oceanic crust into the mantle

Slide 7

Slide 8

Subduction zonesare characterized by two things:

  • Deep trench

  • Long chain of volcanoes

Volcanic arc

Trench

Slide 9

Where is this subduction zone?

Slide 10

  • At oceanic-oceanic convergent boundaries, volcanoes form chains of islands called island arcs.

The Aleutian Islands in Alaska

Slide 11

  • At continental-oceanic convergent boundaries, volcanoes form long mountain chains such as the Cascade Mountains.

Mt. Saint Helens

Slide 12

  • Subduction zones cause the largest Earthquakes known.

  • The 2004 Tsunami in the Indian Ocean was caused by an earthquake at a subduction zone.

Slide 13

Continent-continent convergent boundaries

  • Neither lithospheric plate can be fully subducted.

  • Instead, the plates pile up to form huge mountain ranges

Slide 14

Where is this continent-continent collision?

Slide 15

You are here

Slide 16

Play plate motions animation

Slide 17

Transform plate boundaries

  • Relatively few volcanoes

  • Lots of earthquakes, though not so large as at subduction zones

Slide 18

Where is this transform boundary?

Slide 20

Mid-ocean ridge transforms

Slide 21

Hot Spots

Slide 23

Hot Spots of the World

Slide 24

Divergent boundaries

Slide 25

  • Begin with rifting—upwelling of hot mantle starts to break the crust apart

Slide 26

  • Faults form rift valleys

  • Decompression causes melting and volcanism

Slide 27

  • New oceanic crust begins to form. The plate boundary is now a mid-ocean ridge.

Slide 28
