Comment on this resource
The most profound deformational event involving the interaction of lithospheric plates is a collision between continents; for example, the collision of the Indian continent with the Eurasian continent, which began in the Eocene. This continuing collision has produced intracontinental thrust sheets responsible for the highest mountains in the world. Mount Everest, the Annapurna Range, and the rest ... Full description.

Comment on this resource
Appalachian Mountain landforms clearly demonstrate the relation of plate tectonics and structure to geomorphology. The folded rocks record the convergence of two continental plates in Pennsylvanian/Permian time. This page uses text, maps, and remotely sensed imagery to explain the relationship between plate tectonics, geologic structures, and the resulting landforms. It is part of an out-of-print ...

Comment on this resource
The mental picture of the Appalachian Mountains most of us have is that of long linear ridges and valleys that form a belt some 25 to 100 km wide through Pennsylvania/Virginia/West Virginia and the Carolinas. With relief of 300 to 1000 m or more, these ridges stand out as distinct mountains. This page describes the general geomorphology and geology of the Appalachian Mountains with the use of text ...

This site consists of a digital total sediment thickness map and database for the world's oceans and marginal seas. The data are derived from previously published maps, ocean drilling results (Ocean Drilling Program and Deep Sea Drilling Project), and seismic reflection profiles (National Geophysical Data Center archives and Geological/Geophysical Atlas of the Pacific). Features include a JPEG image ... Full description.
