Question and answer
Q: Describe the how the Pacific plate changes at the different plate boundaries. Refer to the Pacific and Nazca plates
A: The eastern margin is a convergent boundary. [ 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. ]

Weegy: Plate boundary zones, also known as conservative boundaries, are generally found along and between ocean and continental pieces often called belts. [ These types of boundaries have one defining characteristic that makes them different from other kinds of boundaries: they contain two larger plates and a collection of microplates, which are smaller pieces of crust material that do not get subducted or destroyed. The Mediterranean Alpine, North American and African plates, i.e., the areas around Spain, Morocco and Indonesia, are an example of plate boundary zones.
