How Do Convection Currents Form?


Convection currents form when the hot magma rises and the cool magma falls. This happens as the liquid moves in circular patterns. Convection currents occur in the mantle.

Convection currents are formed when the fluid in a container heats up and the dense fluid falls to the bottom of the container and the less dense fluid rises to the top. This forms a circular motion.
