Tectonics - Ocean-Continent Collision

Image cropped - click to view Tectonics - Ocean-Continent Collision


Illustration of a convergent tectonic plate boundary, where one tectonic plate moves under the other (subduction) as they collide (thrust or reverse faulting). This leads to the formation of mountain ranges and volcanoes along the boundary as the subducting plate melts. This example shows the collision of an oceanic plate with a continental one.
