A roughly circular downward fold, like a rounded syncline, with the youngest rocks in the middle.
A roughly circular upwarping (upward fold), like a rounded anticline, with the oldest rocks in the middle (other than the intrusion).
Mountains created by continental-continental collisions, which the largest and most complex type of mountains, and which typically form in large mountain ranges.
folding, pressure, time and warping
Four processes involved in forming mountains by ductile deformation (in alphabetical order).
horst and graben fault
Type of fault where a large block is bound by parallel normal faults on either side.
Tensional fault with the hanging wall block moving down relative to the footwall block.
Type of reverse fault, where the fault line is at a very low angle and the hanging wall slides over the footwall.
Mountain building process where the pressure is applied too fast for the rocks to fold.
anticlines and synclines
Five landforms formed by ductile formation: basins and domes, _______ and ________, and folded mountains.
