A Transform Boundary is where two plates slide past each other. Causing Disturbance such as Earthquakes.
An example of a Transform Boundary, is the San Andreas Fault. Scientists think that this fault is dew for another major Earthquake very soon.
Oh no, the Transform Boundary.
The Process of Convection happens very slowly.When rocks in the Asthenosphere are heated by the core, they become less dense and rise up to the surface.
Then you've got slab pull.This occurs when an ocean plate subducts causing the plate with higher density to move.
Yo, Lets talk about convection in the mantle.
When the rocks rise up, they also expand. When they reach the top, the rocks cool, shrink, and fall back down decreasing in density as well.
Also, let me tell you about something called ridge push. As hot magma rises to the surface, it forms new crust, and when the new crust spreads it pushes the plate.
My name is Braden Olsen and thank you for telling me about Plate Tectonics.
I'm also very aware of the problems that will have to be dealt with in the very distant future due to plate movement. I assume we would see more landforms, as well as Earthquakes.
Thank You for watching this Comic.
I now know that I live in the North American Plate, the Pacific Plate as well as the Eurasian plate border the country I live in.
I'm also aware of the Earthquake that we could have in this lifetime, reguarding the San Andreas Fault.
