A [destructive] plate boundary is sometimes called a [convergent] or tensional plate margin. This occurs when [oceanic] and continental plates move together. The oceanic plate is forced [under] the lighter continental plate. Friction causes [melting] of the oceanic plate and may trigger earthquakes. [Magma] rises up through cracks and [erupts] onto the surface..
