The boundary between two plates that approach one another. The convergence may result in subduction if one plate yields by diving deep into the Earth, obduction if one plate is thrust over the other, or collision if the plates simply ram into each other and are deformed.
A plate boundary at which plates approach eachother.
a boundary between plates that are moving toward each other, or colliding
in plate tectonics, the boundary between two plates that are converging (moving toward each other)
plate boundary where two plates are moving towards each other.
In plate tectonics, a convergent boundary â€“ also known as a convergent plate boundary or a destructive plate boundary â€“ is an actively deforming region where two tectonic plates or fragments of lithosphere move towards one another.
