Transcript of Copy of Fold and Fault Mountain's

What are mountains? Fold and Fault Mountains Sources Now it is time for a short video! Did you know......? Websites: Types of Mountains! There are many different types of mountains in this world.
For example:
Folded mountains
Fault-block Mountains
Dome Mountains
Volcanic Mountains
Plateau Mountains
The most common mountains are Folded mountains and Faulted mountains. Fold Mountains Fault Mountains Fault- Break mountains are strata layers of rock and sand that are caused by compression(squeezing), extension(pulling), or shearing(tearing). It can form with a vertical movement called the dip-slip fault or the horizontal movement called the strike-slip fault. An example of the dip-slip fault would be the Sierra Nevada mountains in North America. Folded mountains are the most common mountains you can find today. These are formed when two plates such as tectonic plates collide and cause it to curve into various folds. This movement takes many years to form and never stops getting bigger. You can find folded mountains most in the Himalayan Mountains in Asia. Well they are enormous rocky landforms that measure up to 600 meters and higher. Mountains cover about a fifth of the earth's surface and are found on all of the continents, even under water. Many of the mountains reach the colder layers of the atmosphere and have less oxygen the higher up. By: Abishane, Namita,Genell and Trishana Mountains! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/foldmountain
