During the convergent boundary, the plate tectonics come together or converge. When these plates shift and one plate goes under another plate, earthquakes can occur. Any shift in the Earth’s crust can instigate an earthquake. As a result of the earthquake, a volcanic eruption could be triggered. Another reaction from the convergent boundary is when the crust under the ocean sinks.
When this shift occurs, the crust moves further away from the ridges. Most of the earthquakes take place in the subduction zones, however, other earthquakes take place in the ocean, but they are usually occurring in the trenches. Some examples of when the plate tectonics have converged include the Eurasion and the Indian Plate coming together which resulted in the Himalayan Mountains.
