when 2 tectonic plates collide it all depends on what type they are. If they are both osianic then the less dence one goes over the more dence one. If they are both continental then the collide and form a mountain.
An earthquake . . . the tectonic plates are slabs of rock and when thy shift, it creates an earthquake.
it happens when the tectonic plates under the earth collide or push into each other to cause disruption so an earthquake would happen in a place were there is the edge of 2 tectonic plates underneath.
If they are continental plates, they make a mountain.
it makes a mountain
It makes a mountain.
When two continental plates collide they buckle up and fold forming mountains.
Continetal collision is when 2 different tectonic plates collide i believe.
It creates a volcano
it causes mountains and sometimes earthquakes
There is an estimated 7 Tectonic plates and they all tend to rub together every so often which causes earthquakesTectonic plates cause earthquakes by:Tectonic plates rub up against each otherTectonic plates go under each otherTectonic plates o above each otherThis happens between 2 plates.
Because an earthquake happens when 2 tectonic plates hit each other.
mountains occur where tectonic plates collideWhen they rub against each otherPlus it could be caused by two continental plates colliding as well.they occur mostly where 2 tectonic plates of the same crust (Continental or oceanic) met together at a conservative boundary (at a boundary where they both collide and go upwards) this is why mountains keep on growing, because the plates don't stop pushing.
Mt Eyjafjallajökull (whew!) is on 2 different tectonic plates.
Landforms such as ocean trenches and mountain ranges are created.
They can slide past each other, they can collide, or they can pull apart.
It creates a explosion similar to when Chuck Norris gets mad.
Mountains are formed by plae tectonics. It happens when 2 plates collide and 1 plate is pushed up. The resulting upwards force makes a mountain range. The Rockies, Andes, and the Himalayas are all examples of this.
Earthquakes typically do not occur in the middle of tectonic plates. Earthquakes are mostly caused by 2 tectonic plates colliding into or sliding past each other, resulting in friction that causes earthquakes. However, there are no such tectonic activity going on in the middle of tectonic plates.
tectonic plates- move in 3 ways 1. collide w/ eachother 2.seperate from eachother 3. slide against eachother when plates are moved to the breaking point it causes an eartquake an earthquake is a seismic wave
They can collide and create mountain ranges (i.e, Himalayas) or the older plate will subduct under the other.
