Slide 1

WHAT IS OROGENY? Procedures of mtn building Distinctive examples of statement eugeocline, miogeocline Deformation Folding and push blaming Metamorphism Intrusions: batholiths, and so forth Volcanic Activity

Slide 2

TYPES OF MOUNTAINS Volcanic: Shield and composite Fault-piece: ordinary blaming and pressure Folded: reverse issues and pressure Complex: blend of a large portion of the above

Slide 3

Mauna Loa in Background Kilaeua is Behind Mauna Loa Mauna Kea Shield spring of gushing lava Hot Spot Basalt

Slide 4

Kilaeua Newest ground on the planet Asthenosphere rising to the top

Slide 5

Composite Volcano Mt Rainier Compressive strengths Subduction zones Andesitic sythesis

Slide 6

Guagua Pichincha, Ecuador Quito in closer view Composite volcanoes touchy

Slide 7

Normal flaw Footwall climbs with respect to Hanging divider FOOTWALL HANGING WALL Tension powers

Slide 8

Tilted deficiency square range: Sierra Nevada from east, Steep side of square blame; Ansel Adams photograph

Slide 9

Tilted Fault-square Sierra Nevada from west Side, low point Yosemite valley the aftereffect Of glaciation on low-edge alleviation

Slide 10

Wasatch Range From Salt Lake City Typically blame Block framework

Slide 11

Grand Tetons: Another issue square framework

Slide 12

Alternating ordinary shortcomings lead to a trademark design called a Horst and Graben framework. A region under strain will regularly have Multiple mountain extents therefore.

Slide 13

Basin and extent region: tilted flaw piece mountains in Nevada. The consequences of a horst and graben framework. Nevada is under strain Because of rising magma which is unfastening the framework, the distance From Baja California Sierra Nevada and Wasatch Ranges a portion of this framework

Slide 14

REVERSE FAULTS: Hanging divider climbs in respect to footwall Result of pressure: plates impacting Two sorts: low-edge or push shortcomings, and high-point reverse issues Individual layers can move 100\'s of kilometers Alps are an extraordinary illustration

Slide 15

Thrust deficiencies fundamental driver Of collapsed mountains

Slide 16

Appalachian Mountains of the US

Slide 17

Atlas Mountains, Northern Africa

Slide 18

Classic collapsed landscape: very much created anticline

Slide 19

ZAGROS MTS PERSIAN GULF Alternating Anticlines and Synclines

Slide 20

High-edge reverse issues Forms "Sawtooth Mtns" Flatirons exemplary case Sawtooth impact aftereffect of Differential disintegration

COMPLEX MOUNTAINS Tend to have a tad bit of Everything: volcanoes, Folds, push flaws, ordinary issues ALPS HIMALAYAS
