At a transform plate boundary, two tectonic plates pass one another, creating a fracture zone. This motion causes phenomena such as earthquakes. More »

Tectonic plates move horizontally past one another at transform boundaries in either strike-slip or aseismic motions. Earthquakes and tsunamis occur when the pressure locking plates in a strike-slip boundary releases sud... More »

Transform-fault boundaries are created when two tectonic plates slide past one another horizontally, according to the website Plate Tectonics. They are also known as transform boundaries or more commonly are called fault... More »

When two tectonic plates pull apart from one another, they form a divergent plate boundary. In addition to divergent boundaries, there are two other common types of boundaries: convergent boundaries and transform boundar... More »

A plate boundary is a location where two tectonic plates meet. There are three different types of tectonic plate boundaries, which are defined by the relative motion of each plate. The three types of plate boundaries are... More »

When two tectonic plates meet or collide, it is called a convergent boundary. The force behind two plates colliding can cause mountain ranges to form, as well as the formation of deep sea floor trenches. More »

A convergent plate boundary occurs when a collision of tectonic plates causes one plate to slide over the top of another. There are three examples of convergent plate boundaries that occur as the result of continental an... More »
