Sammanfattning : Collisional orogeny creates the largest mountain belts on Earth. The Caledonides of Scandinavia are a deeply eroded, ancient mountain belt, which today exposes a deep section through the former orogenic interior. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : When continental plates collide, one of the involved continents is subducted beneath the other one. As a consequence, the lithosphere thickens along the convergent plate boundary and causes the formation of a mountain belt. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Mountain building is the result of large compressional forces in the Earth’s crust where two tectonic plates collide. This is why mountains only form at plate boundaries, of which the Al Hajar Mountains in Oman and the United Arab Emirates is thought to be an example of. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Mountains evolve and grow because of the large forces that occur from the collision of tectonic plates. Plate boundaries change and move through time, and regions that were once stable, shallow-marine environments can be dragged into subduction zones and get transformed into vast mountain ranges.

Sammanfattning : The concept of index mineral based metamorphic zones was first introduced by George Barrow in 1912, and Barrovian metamorphism is still applied by metamorphic petrologists. Today the importance of metamorphic fluids for driving metamorphic reactions is widely recognised. LÄS MER
