    Q10.4 A Different Type of Transform Fault

    Juan de Fuca and Explorer Plates [SE]

    The Juan de Fuca Plate is moving faster than the Explorer Plate, which means that the Juan de Fuca Plate is sliding past the Explorer Plate. There is side-by-side relative motion on this plate boundary, and that makes it a transform fault.
