FIGURE 10.31 Along this lateral plate boundary, marked by the San Andreas Fault in western North America, the Pacific plate moves northwestward relative to the North American plate. Note that north of San Francisco, the boundary type changes.

What boundary type is found north of San Francisco, and what types of surface features indicate this change?

To determine

The boundary type found in the north of San Francisco, and the types of surface features that indicate this change.

Explanation

A vast variety of crustal activities exist at the regions of tectonic plate convergence. The zones of plate convergence indicate some of the tectonically-active locations on the Earth. The volcanic activity, deep trenches, and mountain ranges are formed along the convergent plate boundaries, and depend on the type of crustal plate involved in the collision.

The convergent plate boundary where an oceanic crust collides with continental crust, is the place where the denser

oceanic crust is subducted beneath the less dense continental crust...
