- 2. The margin or boundary between two tectonic plates.
- 8. Tectonic plate margin where rising magma adds new material to plates that are diverging or moving apart.
- 9. A sudden or violent movement within the Earth’s crust followed by a series of shocks.
- 10. Molten liquid rock above the surface of the Earth.
- 1. A rigid segment of the Earth’s crust that can ‘float’ across the heavier, semi-molten rock below. Continental plates are less dense but thicker than oceanic plates.
- 3. Tectonic plate margin where two plates are converging or coming together and the oceanic plate is subducted. It can be associated with violent earthquakes and explosive volcanoes.
- 4. Tectonic plate margin where two tectonic plates slide past each other.
- 5. The type of plate that forms the Earth's continents.
- 6. The type of plate found under oceans.
- 7. Molten liquid rock below the surface of the Earth.
