There are 3 main types of Plate movement.
Divergent Plate Movement: Seafloor Spreading
Seafloor spreading is identified as the movement of two oceanic plates away from each other. What results from this is
the formation of a new oceanic crust. This crust forms from the magma that comes from within the Earth's mantle when the
two plates split away from each other.
Convergent Plate Movement:
Convergent Plate Movement is identified when two plates collide into each other at their margins or boundaries. Crusts
usually change in size, which results from this type of movement. The results differ, depending upon what types of plates
Two Continental Plates: Mountain ranges are created.
Two Oceanic Plates:one may be pushed under the other and magma from the mantle rises, creating volcanoes.
Oceanic Plate and Continental Plate: The oceanic plate is forced under the continental plate; this phenomenon is called
