PLATE MOVEMENT- DIVERGENT

Move away from each other (DIVERGENT PLATE) When the two plates move away from each others.  As the plate moves apart, the rocks break and form fractures in the crust when an earthquake occur along the plate boundary. Magma from the mantle rises to the ocean floor through these fractures and solidifies at the plate […]

PLATE MOVEMENT- CONVERGENT

MOVE TOWARDS EACH OTHER    (CONVERGENT PLATE) When the two plates move towards or collide each others. This will make the subduction where one plate ( oceanic crust) move downwards beneath the other plate into underlying mantle and form block of mountain ( Continental crust) and oceanic ridges ( Oceanic crust). Subduction is the process which […]
