User: During mantle convection, heat from the earth's core causes material in the mantle to expand and move upward. When it reaches the top, it _____.

Weegy: It eventually will break through causing magma to overflow. This over an extensive period of time will create a volcano.

User: A well-known transform boundary found in California is the _____. San Francisco fault San Andreas fault San Diego fault San Jose fault

Weegy: The San Andreas Fault is a continental transform fault that runs a length of roughly 800 miles (1,300 km) through California in the United States. The fault's motion is right-lateral strike-slip (horizontal motion). [ It forms the tectonic boundary between the Pacific Plate and the North American Plate. ]

Similar fossils of plants and animals are found on widely separated continents. Remains of tropical plants found in Antarctica. Matching jig-saw puzzle coastlines, particularly with the west coast of Africa and east coast of South America.

Weegy: particularly with the west coast of Africa and east coast of South America.

Weegy: convergent tectonic plates

User: This plate boundary creates new land, like the seafloor at the mid-atlantic ridge.

User: convergent

Weegy: Yes, what is your question about convergent?
eturker|Points 1683|

User: What is convergent

User: Convergent boundry definiton

Weegy: In plate tectonics, a convergent boundary, also known as a destructive plate boundary (because of subduction), is an actively deforming region where two (or more) tectonic plates or fragments of lithosphere move toward one another and collide. [ As a result of pressure, friction, and plate material melting in the mantle, earthquakes and volcanoes are common near convergent boundaries. When two plates move towards one another, they form either a subduction zone or a continental collision. This depends on the nature of the plates involved. In a subduction zone, the subducting plate, which is normally a plate with oceanic crust, moves beneath the other plate, which can be made of either oceanic or continental crust. During collisions between two continental plates, large mountain ranges, such as the Himalayas are formed. ]
