Thrust or compressive motion.
yes it does
The collision of the Indian and Eurasian Plates, creating the Himalayan Mountain Range.
The crack or line between two plates that are pushing together.
Two plates coming together is known as a convergent boundary.
One of the three types of plates are the transform plates slip past each other. The convergent plates push together. The divergent plates pull away from each other.
They can move apart or in some rare cases together.
Two plates are being smashed together creating the Himalayas.
In a reverse fault, compression (plates crashing together) causes the hanging wall to move up. In a normal fault, tension ( plates pulling apart) causes the footwall to push up.
Well it depends. Like if the plates slid next to each other you would get a earthquake sometimes creating volcanic reaction therefore making an island. Or if the plates smashed together, you'll get a mountain.
Continental drift is the theory that "plates" on the Earth are constantly in motion and have been for millions of years. Tectonic plates are the actual moving plates.
A convergent boundary can form between two plates and a divergent boundary can be created between two plates, then two plates rubbing together create earthquakes, many are very minor. A convergent boundary is two plates pushing together to form a mountain, hill, or volcano. Divergent plates move apart and create canyons and stuff.
plates keep earth in motion
Two tectonic plates collided together and then one was forced up creating a massive wave of destruction.
Two colliding continental plates will cause an uplift. An example would be the Indian sub-continent colliding with Asia creating the Himalaya mountains.
Motion of plates
it is tension
They fold up when there continental, creating mountains and steep hills. The Rocky's are a great example. Oceanic plate collisions cause tsunamis, and Oceanic plates are subducted under Continental plates, they are overlapped by the continental plate.
Convection cells of magma, circular currents of heating and cooling which increases (cooling) or decreases (heating) density. The Circular motion pulls the plates (away )apart at one point which results with a counter motion of the plates "pushing" into other plates which pushes into another plate so on and so forth.
No hurricanes are caused by instability over warm oceans creating thunderstorms which start to spin and join together.
They are constantly in motion.
Both Volcanoes and earthquakes are located where plates of the earth's crust are coming together. This motion and interaction at the edges of the plates is called plate tectonics.
it happens by two of the tectonic plates colliding together and creating a volcanic eruption.And when they bash together and they have equal force they go up forming mountains (example) Mount. Everast (not in all occasions) or they could go down (example) The Dead Sea
Describe two ways mountains can be formed ?
