Processes of Mountain Building
Block: When a fault bloke is raised or tilted, block mountains are the result. The spreading apart of the surface causes tensional forces. When the tensional forces are strong enough to cause a plate to split apart, it does so and that a center block drops down relative to its flanking blocks.
Volcanic: Volcanic Mountains are formed when magma deep within the Earth, erupts, and piles upon the surface. Magma is called lava when it breaks through the Earth's crust. When ash and lava cools, it builds a cone of rock. The volcanoes can be shield volcanoes.
