When tectonic plates collide and form a convergent boundary, their interaction can produce earthquakes, volcanic activity, underwater trenches and mountain formations. Any resulting geologic events on the Earth's surface... More »

Convergent boundaries are defined as locations where tectonic plates collide with each other. The melting lithospheric material produces volcanoes, and the motion of the tectonic plates along the convergent boundaries le... 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 »

Tectonic processes create new sediments as plates collide, move sediment as one plate slips past or overrides another, and ultimately transform sediment by accumulation or volcanic activity. Ocean sediments transfigure b... 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 »

When two continental tectonic plates collide, it causes the rocks in both plates to fold and eventually become piled up to form mountains. The most obvious example of this are the Himalayas, which were formed as a result... More »
