.The mechanically rigid/sedimentary outer layer of lithosphere is broken into tectonic plates with convergent, transforming and divergent boundaries. These plates ride over semi-molten interior rock.


Along transforming boundaries, tectonic plates slide past one another. Top of lithosphere reacts with atmosphere, hydrosphere and biosphere resulting in soil formation..
