list and describe the four main features that are explained by tectonics plate theory
The four main features that are explained by tectonics plate theory are described below:
1) mid-ocean ridges that form at divergent and transform boundaries. The ridges are a mountainous system on a seafloor.
2) volcanoes that form at convergent and divergent boundaries. Volcanoes are hills or even mountains with craters and vents with lava.
3) mountains form that form at convergent boundaries. Mountains are large landforms greater than hills that form on the surface of the planet and under water.
4) oceanic trenches that form at convergent boundaries. The trenches are narrow and long areas of the seafloor that lie below the level of the surrounding area.
