How would the angle of a subducting oceanic plate at a convergent margin effect the location of the associated inland continental bolcanic rocks?
If you can't pass Professor Huff's class honestly then you should automatically tell him to give you an F!
How do the mountains that form along an oceanic-oceanic convergent boundary differ from those associated with an oceanic-continental convergent boundary?
In a oceanic-continental convergent boundary you normally get subduction , when one plate slides under another. In this case the plate subducting, or going under is the oceanic plate ( it is more dense ), so the mountains would be just of the continental plate. In a oceanic-oceanic convergent boundary the mountains would just be oceanic ( basalt).
Why do deep earthquakes occur only at ocean-ocean convergent boundaries and ocean-continental convergent boundaries?
Yes, the Himalayas are located on a convergent boundary. There are three types of convergent boundaries: -Oceanic-Oceanic -Oceanic-Continental -Continental-Continental Of the three types, the Himalayas are considered to be Continental-Continental. Meaning, it's a collision between two continental plates.
A convergent boundary with no subduction is a continental-continental boundary. Because oceanic crust is denser than continental crust, it is always the subducting plate in a oceanic-continental boundary. In an oceanic-oceanic boundary, one of the plates will subduct, depending on several factors. Continental plates are thicker and less dense than oceanic plates, and when they converge, they push up the area where the plates meet, forming mountain ranges (note that this is not the only…
There are three types of convergent boundaries: Oceanic, continental, and continental-oceanic convergent boundaries. Continental-continental convergent boundaries form mountain ranges. Continental-oceanic boundaries result in subduction zones and the recycling of lithosphere. The continental side of the boundary may form a mountain range. Oceanic-oceanic form deep oceanic trenches and sometimes volcanoes.
