1. They move towards each other

2. Oceanic-Oceanic plate convergence-when two oceanic plates converge , the denser plate subducts under the other less dense plate. The area where this happens is known as the subduction zone.

3. Oceanic plate is denser then the Continental plate, therefore causing the oceanic plate to subduct .

4. This Process of the Oceanic and Continental plate converging to each other is also known as Subduction

5. Oceanic Trench is formed at point of Subduction

6. Continental-continental plate convergence: Two continental plates may collide and push against one another, resisting subduction. This causes
