Earthquakes! That is what most often happens, but then obviously all of earth's tectonic plates are next to one another right now.

Mountains and Ocean trenches would be the answered you are probably looking for. The giant Marianas trench out in the North Pacific is where two large plates converge. Hence there is a allot of earthquakes in that area as well as a super deep trench - the deepest spot on earth man has reached by the way (the Challenger Deep, visited by only three people so far).
