The tectonic plates are moving apart from each other. The gap created by plates that are moving away from each other is filled in by new crust, created from the solidification of lava which is derived from the decompression melting of rising mantle rock.
when two continental plates diverge a volcano near those plates erupts or is created
A rift or ridge is formed.
When oceanic and oceanic plates diverge it creates mid ocean ridges!
An earth quake. This happens because the vibrations force the plates apart
A long crack in earth's crust where two tectonic plates diverge is called a Rift.
It happens that a valley appears to come over time
When plates diverge, they come apart causing deep trenches in the earth. When plates converge, they come together causing volcanoes or mountains. That is how the Himalayas formed. Think of this, Diverge- come apart Converge- come together. ( con- means together)
The older denser plate subducts
when plates diverge a normal fault is formed
When 2 continental plates diverge, a __ forms.
None of the above. Where two plates diverge.
a rift, or gap, in the bottom of the ocean.
A spreading ridge, where two plates diverge.
When oceanic plates diverge an underwater earthquake is the result. Oceanic earthquakes often result in disastrous Tsunamis.
Where the tectonic plates diverge.
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
False. A rift valley forms when continental plates diverge or pull apart. When two continental plates collide the result is a mountain range.
Two plates can either converge, diverge, or transform. A convergent boundary is when two plates come together, a divergent boundary is when they move apart, and a transform boundary is when two plates slide against each other in opposite directions.
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.
Itis called a rift.
A rift valley form and around that rift valley a volcano could form also.
what happens when two ocean plates come together
You can check a science book if im not correct a normal fault is formed when they diverge
Where pieces of Earth's crust diverge on land, a deep valley called a rift valley forms.
