FIG. T-16. Triple-junction geometry and stability. R denotes a ridge (spreading), T a trench (converging), F a transform fault. The dashed lines ab, bc, ac represent velocities that leave the boundary geometry between the respective plates unchanged; a triple junction is stable if they meet at a point. (After McKenzie and Morgan, 1969.)
