transform-fault boundary
Earth's plates slide past each other here
convergent boundary
Earth's plates may collide here
divergent boundary
Earth's plates spread apart here
lithosphere
The crust and topmost mantle from this part of the Earth
asthenosphere
This upper part of the mantle from s this part of the Earth
dome mountain
This may form when Earth's surface bulges
fault-block mountain
This may form when masses of rock move up or down a fault
convection
This process describes the transfer of heat in molten rock
convection current
The movement of Earth's plates might be due to this
volcano
Molten rock may pour out of this opening in the Earth's crust
folded mountain
This is formed when two tectonic plates collide
