Learn about the three different types of convergent boundaries.
Convergent boundaries create volcanoes, earthquakes, and deep trenches when the large tectonic plates made up of the lithosphere bump into one another.
Divergent plate boundaries occur when two tectonic plates move away from one another.
Divergent plate boundaries are considered constructive boundaries.
If you look at a map of the major tectonic plates you can see several divergent plate boundaries.
There are two major types of divergent boundaries.
Continental and continental lithosphere and oceanic and oceanic lithosphere.
An example of an oceanic and oceanic divergent boundary is the mid-ocean ridge.
The mid-ocean ridge runs around the world including going right through Ice land.
A famous example of a continental and continental divergent boundary is the African rift valley.

A little about me: My name is Cary and I'm an animator, motion designer, and FX Artist. When I'm not working, I love learning all about science, from the microscopic to the epically large.
I created this channel as a place where people can come to learn about science, share new ideas, and expand their knowledge of the world around them.
We explore everything from the foundations of earth science and biology to the vast mysteries of the universe and everything in between.
And as I learn new things, I look forward to sharing them here in a fun and engaging way that hopefully helps you learn something new and inspires you to pass it on.
A quick overview of plate tectonics, including a look at the different types of plate boundaries; convergent, divergent, and transform.
Hey there! My name is Mike Sammartano. I'm an educator, instructional designer, and technologist. I spent 15 years teaching astronomy, oceanography, geology, environmental science and meteorology to students in middle and high school. On my channel, you will mostly find videos which explore these topics, along with a handful of instructional technology tutorials. Thanks for watching, and please feel free to connect with me with any suggestions for new videos, comments, or just to say hi!
