Old oceanic crust is consumed in the subduction zone near a continental margin or island arc. adjacent parts of the plates to be pushed away from the ridge in opposite directions (Fig. 4). The oldest portions of oceanic plates are consumed by subduction more or less in proportion to the formation of new oceanic plate at the mid-ocean ridges, thereby maintaining a fairly constant plate size.
