Seafloor spreading occurs at which type of plate boundary


Volcanoes are most common in these geologically active boundaries. The two types of plate boundaries that are most likely to produce volcanic activity are divergent plate boundaries and convergent plate boundaries. At a divergent boundary, tectonic plates move apart from one another.

Transform plate boundary:

The grinding action between the plates at a transform plate boundary results in shallow earthquakes, large lateral displacement of rock, and a broad zone of crustal deformation. Perhaps nowhere on Earth is such a landscape more dramatically displayed than along the San Andreas Fault in western California.

Convergent plate boundary:

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.

Divergent plate boundary:

Effects that are found at a divergent boundary between oceanic plates include: a submarine mountain range such as the Mid-Atlantic Ridge; volcanic activity in the form of fissure eruptions; shallow earthquake activity; creation of new seafloor and a widening ocean basin.

Tectonic Plates and Plate Boundaries

Convergent boundaries: where two plates are colliding. Subduction zones occur when one or both of the tectonic plates are composed of oceanic crust. ...

Three types of Plate boundaries:

1. Divergent Boundary - is also known as constructive boundary. It is termed constructive because divergent boundary creates new seafloor as a spreading center. Seafloor spreading will happen along the divergent plate boundary.

2. Transform Fault Boundary - Two plates are sliding past each other.


3. Convergent Boundary

Convergent boundary is created when two plates are moving towards each other. Plates are moving because of the convection current of the mantle which affects the plates on top of it. Subduction process are present below this type of plate boundaries wherein volcanoes, Earthquake, trenches, and mountain ranges are the geological features present.

Three Types of Convergent Boundary:

Continental to continental convergence - This type of convergent boundary doesn't produce volcanoes, but instead it created a mountain ranges like the Himalayas mountains. It also produces Earthquake.

Oceanic-oceanic plate convergence - This would open result in strong earthquake and will produce underwater volcanoes or volcanic island and it will also  form the deepest trench like the Mariana trench.

Continental to oceanic plate convergence - Philippine island is a product of this type of convergent plate. Volcanoes, volcanic island, trenches, mountains are geological features present in this type of convergent plate.
