TYPES OF PLATE BOUNDARIES

Date:
The Earth’s Lithosphere is divided into several portions called plates and are separated by
margins called plate boundaries. The lithosphere can either be oceanic or continental which has
several distinguishable characteristics. Plates move and interact thus the term Plate tectonics.
When different plates interact, they result in geologic features and events. The resulting geologic
feature or event is dependent on how the plates are interacting and on the characteristic of the
interacting lithospheric plates.
If pairs of plates are moving toward each other or if the plates are colliding, the interaction is
known as a convergent plate boundary. If they are separating or moving away from each other, it
is called a divergent plate boundary. When plates slide past each other without converging or
diverging, the interaction is called a transform-fault boundary.
