The three types of plate boundaries are divergent plate boundaries, convergent plate boundaries and transform plate boundaries. Divergent plate boundaries occur in places where two...
What Are Plate Boundaries?
The Earth is made up of various layers of rock. The outermost layer, known as the crust, is cool and is the layer that all living organisms inhabit; this layer is 5 to 10 km thick, to 35 to 70 km thick, depending on the location. The crust floats on top...

Sep 15, 2014 ... Divergent boundaries occur along spreading centers where plates are moving

In the theory of plate tectonics, the earth's crust is broken into plates that move
around relative to each other. As a result of this movement,...
Plate Boundaries. It is apparent that most of what we observe on the surface of
the earth and at shallow depth is related in some way to plate tectonics.
