The 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami was triggered by an earthquake along the convergent boundary of the Indian plate and Burma microplate and killed over 200,000 people. The 2011 tsunami off the coast of Japan, which caused 16,000 deaths and did $360 billion USD in damage, was caused by a magnitude 9 earthquake along the convergent ...

Convergent plate boundaries are locations where lithospheric plates are moving towards one another. The plate collisions that occur in these areas can produce earthquakes, volcanic activity, and crustal deformation. When continental and oceanic plates collide, the thinner and more dense oceanic ...

Convergent Plate Boundaries; Oceanic/Oceanic: The Caribbean Islands; Oceanic/Oceanic: The Caribbean Islands. The South American Plate is moving westwards due to sea floor spreading at the Mid Atlantic Ridge. Where it meets the Caribbean Plate, it descends (subducts) beneath it. This is because the oceanic lithosphere of the South American Plate ...

At ocean-continent convergent boundaries, the denser, thinner oceanic plate will subduct beneath the thicker, more buoyant continental plate. As the subducting oceanic slab heads deeper into the mantle, pressure and temperature begin to increase. At ~100 km depth, metamorphic reactions in hydrous oceanic rocks and sediments release water into ...

• There are three types of convergent plate boundaries: oceanic-oceanic boundaries, oceanic-continental boundaries, and continental-continental boundaries. Each one is unique because of the density of the plates involved. • Convergent plate boundaries are often the sites of earthquakes, volcanoes, and other significant geological activity.

One example of this type of oceanic-continental convergent boundary is the Andes mountain range of western South America. Here the Nazca plate is subducting beneath the South American Plate. Oceanic-Continental Convergent Boundaries Another example of the oceanic-continental

They’re both convergent zones, but when an oceanic plate converges with a continental plate, the oceanic plate is forced underneath the continental plate because oceanic crust is thinner and denser than continental crust. When two oceanic plates c...
