Description: Sliding boundaries are different from the other two boundary types. These boundaries exist where 2 plates are sliding against each other. These boundaries are also referred to as "transform boundaries." These occur in most commonly in ocean crust, but there are also sliding boundaries in continental crust.
The plates are typically moving in different directions. Crust is neither created nor destroyed at sliding boundaries.
An example of a sliding boundary is the San Andreas Fault in California, where EARTHQUAKES are formed as a result of the two boundaries rubbing against each other. This is the reason why Norwalk has so many earthquakes compared to other cities in the country.
