The collision of India with Asia is perhaps the best example of this type of convergence. Here the Eurasian Plate is overriding the Indian Plate, creating a double thickness of crust and forming the highest mountain chain in the world. 10 shows how the Indian subcontinent moved northward over a period of several hundred million years and collided with the Eurasia plate about 10 million years ago. Transform plate boundaries (strike-slip faults) Transform boundaries are strike-slip faults along which two separate plates slide horizontally past each other (Fig.

This is because surrounding air is drawn into the rising jet near the vent, where it becomes heated by contact with the hot ash. This hot air expands and convection causes it to rise, carrying the ash with it, beyond the height which may be achieved by the jet alone. Thus, a characteristic feature of a Plinian eruption is an eruption column comprising a ‘gas thrust’ zone near its base and topped by a more extensive convective assent region. This type of eruption is typical of volcanoes associated with subduction zones.
