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.
