Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Jordon and Ryan's boundaries Infographic A tectonic boundary where two plates are moving away from each other and new crust is forming from magma that rises to the Earth's surface between the two plates. When the boundaries diverge they separate because they are moving away from each other. The space in between is magma and it cools into igneous rock. This example is moving 100 km. A fun fact is that, the sea floor with yellow lines is over 150 million years old!! A convergent boundary is an actively deforming region where two (or more) tectonic plates or fragments of the lithosphere move toward one another and collide. This an example of a convergent boundary and it's features. A subduction zone is formed at a convergent plate boundary when one or both of the tectonic plates is composed of oceanic crust This example is moving very quick and moving in a productive way. The convergent boundary is approximately 600 million years old. A transform boundary is a fault zone where two plates slide past each other horizontally. The result of two massive plates pushing against one another is that massive amounts of energy build up. Occasionally this energy is released suddenly in the form of large earthquakes. This picture is an example of a transform boundary and how it works and move. In this example the transform boundary is moving fast and it says on the picture this boundary is conservative. The transform boundary causes many earthquakes when they transform.
