Volcanoes form from the exposure of lava in the Earth's mantle.


Actually this is wrong, it forms a mid oceanic ridge. Do some more research next time.

C. Actually it forms a Mid-Ocean Trench both of you do better reserch next time.

How are divergent plates different from convergent plates?

Divergent Boundaries happen when two plates (oceanic or contental) begin to diverge, or move apart. Convergent Boundaries occur when two plates (again, oceanic or contential) begin to converge or move apart

What does it mean when tectonic plates are diverging?

When two tectonic plates are diverging, that means that they are coming apart. Depending whether or not they are oceanic plates or continental plates, the outcome will be different. If two oceanic plates diverge, a rift valley will occur in the ocean; if the same is with continental plates an rift vally will occur on the continent.

What causes two continental plates to diverge?

An earth quake. This happens because the vibrations force the plates apart

When it is two continental plates, new oceanic crust is formed, and when this continues, more oceanic crust is formed between the plates.

What occurs when two plates diverge?

A rift.

What are long cracks in earth where plates diverge?

A long crack in earth's crust where two tectonic plates diverge is called a Rift.

What happens if an oceanic to oceanic happens?

When an oceanic to oceanic happens, two oceanic plates converge and one of the plates subducts into a trench. The subducted plate sinks down into the mantle and begins to melt. Molten rock from the plate rises toward the surface and forms a chain of volcanic islands, also called a volcanic island arc, behind the trench in the ocean.

What can a divergent boundary at two oceanic plates result in?

Diverging oceanic plates create new oceanic crust.

What are the 2 oceanic plates?

There are many more than two. Plates are formed of continental and oceanic crust. Most plates are a combination of the two. Oceanic plate is not a correct term.

What are the two main types of plates?

The two main types of plates are continental plates and oceanic plates. Continental plates are larger, thicker and less dense compared to oceanic plates.

What happens when two plates carrying oceanic crust and continental crust collide?

Describe what happens when two plates carrying oceanic crust collide?

Best Answer:When two plates carrying oceanic crust collide, the resultis that one goes underneath the other - probably causinga tsunami - or an underwater earthquake.
