The landforms formed by the action of volcanoes and volcanic eruptions are known as volcanic landforms. The extrusive igneous rocks are formed when the cooling of Lava occurs above the Earth's surface. The intrusive igneous rocks or plutonic rocks are formed when the Magma cools within the earth's crust.

Divergent plate boundaries occur at locations where the lithospheric plates move away from each other. They occur above the rising convection currents in the asthenosphere. At the point of the crest of upliftment the plate is stretched, which breaks it and pulls the above plates apart, creating a divergent boundary.
