Mountains!!!

And all their brilliance…

  • Cover 1/5 earth’s surface

  • Found on EVERY continent and in all oceans

  • Formed by:

  • -the constant but very slow movement of the

  • Earth’s plates .

  • -Travel 1 to 4 inches per year.

  • - Plates collide = crust folds into high mountainous ranges.

  • Five ways that mountains are formed :

    • Volcanic Activity

    • Folding 4. Erosion

    • Faulting 5. Dome building


Mountains!!!

And all their brilliance…

  • = Involves the extrusion(forcing out) of rock tends

  • (lava) to form mountains or features like

  • mountains over large amount of time.

  • Examples = A 680 mile long fault running 50 miles off the

  • west- coast of the USA, from the Pacific Northwest off

  • Northern California to Vancouver Islands &

  • British Columbia.

  • Faulting, Folding & Dome Building

  • Folding = Earth’s plates are pushed together in a roller-coaster like series of

  • high points and low points. Bends many layers of rocks without

  • breaking them.

  • Examples = Appalachian Mts. & Rocky Mts.

  • Faulting = The earth’s crust move vertically upward at fault lines by

  • pressures caused plates colliding . Fault lines are

  • great cracks in the crust.

  • Examples = Sierra Nevada Mts. In California & Nevada/grand

  • Teton range in Wyoming .

Volcanic Activity


Mountains!!!

And all their brilliance…

  • Dome Building = Low Mountains that were formed when the crust was

  • heaved upward without folding or faulting into a

  • round dome. The mountains are much higher in

  • elevation than the surrounding land and because of

  • this erosion occurs at a very fast rate.

  • Examples = Black Hills of South Dakota & Wyoming & Adirondack

  • Mts. of New York State.

  • Erosion = the gradual destruction of something, eroding by wind, water,

    • or natural agents.

    • Weathering & Erosion

    • Example = Our very own Old Man of the Mountain!!!
