Tectonic Plates through Time:
- plate figure:

There are four types of plate boundaries:

   - Divergent boundaries -- where new crust is generated as the plates
   pull away from each other.
   - *Convergent boundaries -- where crust is destroyed as one plate dives
   under another.*
   - Transform boundaries -- where crust is neither produced nor destroyed
   as the plates slide horizontally past each other.
   - Plate boundary zones -- broad belts in which boundaries are not well
   defined and the effects of plate interaction are unclear.

There are several types of *Convergent boundaries:*

   - an oceanic and a largely continental plate;
   - between two largely oceanic plates; or,
   - *between two largely continental plates.*
