1 What does this all mean? DIVIDE COLLIDE - SLIDE There are three types of motion. Plates can divide apart and move away from each other. Plates can collide together and move closer. Plates can slide past and along each other. 1

2 Plate Motion: Divide Divergent Boundary: When two plates divide or separate. Step 1 Rift Valley Step 2 Small Sea Step 3 Ocean Plate Motion: Slide Transform / Strike-Slip Slip Boundary - When two plates slide or slip past one another. - Example: San Andreas Fault --Located in in California --North North American and and Pacific Pacific Plate Plate --Pacific Pacific plate plate moving faster fasterto to NW. NW. --Causes earthquakes in in California 2

3 Convergent Boundaries A convergent plate boundary is a location where two plates are colliding and hitting one another. Plate collisions occur slowly (millions of years). Convergent Boundaries There are three possible scenarios that can occur at a convergent plate boundary: Ocean plate 1. Oceanic-Continental collides with a Convergence Continental plate. 2. Oceanic-Oceanic Convergence 3. Continental - Continental Convergence Ocean plate collides with an Ocean plate. Continental plate collides with a Continental plate. 3

4 Convergent Boundaries: Ocean - Continental Oceanic-Continental Convergence 1. An ocean and continental plate collide. 2. The continental crust is made of less dense materials as thus floats over the ocean crust. 3. The more dense ocean crust sinks, or subducts under the continental crust and into the asthenosphere. 4. The location where this occurs is called a subduction zone. Convergent Boundaries: Ocean - Continental Oceanic-Continental Convergence 5. The subducting ocean plate creates a V-shaped trench as it sinks under the continental plate. 6. As the ocean crust enters the hot asthenosphere, water from the plate is released causing mantle rocks to start to melt. The water acts like salt does to ice, causing the rocks to melt at a lower temperature than they normally would. 7. The melted magma slowly rises through the mantle and crust,, where it continues to melt more rock. 4

5 Convergent Boundaries: Ocean - Continental Oceanic-Continental Convergence 8. Eventually the magma will rise to the surface in a volcanic eruption.. The lava cools forming rocky volcanic mountains. 9. Volcanic activity is created along the entire subduction zone (along the entire length of the subducting plate). 10. This forms a continental-volcanic arc. Convergent Boundaries: Ocean - Continental 5

6 Convergent Boundaries: Ocean - Continental Convergent Boundaries: Ocean - Continental Oceanic-Continental Convergence Examples: Andes Volcanic Mountains Cascades Mountain Range (Mt. Rainier, Shasta, & St Helens) Formerly Sierra Nevada (Yosemite ( National Park) Yosemite National Park) NOT ACTIVE 6

7 Convergent Boundaries: Ocean - Continental Convergent Boundaries: Ocean - Continental 7

8 Convergent Boundaries: Ocean - Continental Convergent Boundaries: Ocean - Ocean Oceanic-Oceanic Convergence 1. An ocean and another ocean plate collide. 2. The ocean plate that is more dense will be the one to subduct into the asthenosphere. 3. Typically the older the rock on the plate, the more dense it will be. 4. Once the plate enters the asthenosphere, it begins to melt, giving off water, thus causing even more rock to melt in the mantle and crust. 8

9 Convergent Boundaries: Ocean - Ocean Oceanic-Oceanic Convergence 5. The magma produced will buoyantly rise and cool forming rocky volcanic mountains under the ocean. 6. As the volcanic mountains grow, they will eventually emerge from the ocean as a volcanic island. 7. These islands are called volcanic-island island arcs. Convergent Boundaries: Ocean - Ocean Oceanic-Oceanic Convergence Examples: Aleutian Islands Mariana Islands 9

10 Convergent Boundaries: Ocean - Ocean Convergent Boundaries: Continental - Continental Continental-Continental Convergence Examples: Himalaya Mountains in Asia 10

11 Convergent Boundaries: Continental - Continental Continental Continental Convergence 1. Two continental plates collide with one another. 2. Neither one of the continental plates will subduct because they are both low in density. 3. The result is a collision where the crust is compressed and deformed as both plates are forced upward, forming a mountain range. Convergent Boundaries: Continental - Continental 11

12 Convergent Boundaries: Ocean - Continental 12
