D. New mid-ocean ridges, and in the bottom of the sea: When two plates move apart from one another, all the magma inside the Earth rises to the surface and pushes the tectonic plates, the creation of a new crust in that area. New sea floor is created, taking as examples the limit of the call Mesoatlantic Ridge, which separates the North American and Eurasian plates in the north of the planet, and in the south, in the Atlantic Ocean, separates the African and south american plates. They are regions where new sea floor is always created.
