The Himalayas A convergent boundary is wheretwo tectonic plates move towards one another. The Himalayasare an example of a convergentboundary. As a result of the tectonic plates moving towards each other, they grow an inch every year. Andre Flores & Kailani Oyama-Rodriguez Fun Facts ~Mount Everest, the world's tallest mountain, is part of the Himalayas.~In the highest altitudes of certainranges in the Himalayas, thesnow never melts. Divergent Boundary A divergent boundary is where two tectonic plates moveaway from each other. An example of a divergent boundary is the Great Rift Valley, or the East African Rift.As a result of the plates moving awayfrom each other, the rift grows 6-7 mm annually. The East African Rift Fun Facts ~It extends 3,000 miles from North Syria to central Mozambique. ~The cichlid, a type of fish in Africas Rift Valley Lakes, is the fastest evolving species on earth, with a new species evolving every thirty years. The East African Rift is an example of a divergent boundary. Transform Boundary A transform boundary is wheretwo tectonic plates shift. Whentwo boundaries transform,earthquakes are caused. One of the most famous places wheretransform boundaries happen is the San Andreas Fault. It movesabout 1.5 inches a year. The San Andreas Fault The San Andreas Fault is an example of a transform boundary. Fun Facts double click to changethis text! Drag a cornerto scale proportionally.
