Are most transform boundaries found?

How common are transform boundaries?

Transform plate boundaries are common as offsets along mid-ocean ridges. They are very small compared to transform faults on land. Transform plate boundaries are different from the other two types of plate boundaries.

Are transform plate boundaries rare?

When you look at the Earth’s surface, transform boundaries are more rare than divergent and convergent plate boundaries. In addition, they don’t create or destroy crust so they’re more deceptive to see on land. In fact, they often lack any recognizable topographic features on land.

Which of the following is most commonly associated with transform plate boundaries?

Earthquakes are common at transform plate boundaries. The energy released by earthquakes at oceanic transform faults is about 100 times greater than earthquakes that occur along the mid-ocean ridge crests.

What geologic event is most likely to happen at transform fault boundary?

earthquake is the right answer.

Where can transform plate boundaries be found?

Transform boundaries are places where plates slide sideways past each other. At transform boundaries lithosphere is neither created nor destroyed. Many transform boundaries are found on the sea floor, where they connect segments of diverging mid-ocean ridges. California’s San Andreas fault is a transform boundary.
