    Divergent Boundaries. At divergent boundaries, sometimes called constructive boundaries, lithospheric plates move away from each other. There are two types of divergent boundaries, categorized by where they occur: continental rift zones and mid-ocean ridges. Continental rift zones occur in weak spots in the continental lithospheric plate.A mid-ocean ridge usually originates in a. A terrane in geology, in full a tectonostratigraphic terrane, is a fragment of crustal material formed on, or broken off from, one tectonic plate and accreted or "sutured" to crust lying on another plate.

A terrane in geology, in full a tectonostratigraphic terrane, is a fragment of crustal material formed on, or broken off from, one tectonic plate and accreted or "sutured" to crust lying on another crustal block or fragment preserves its own distinctive geologic history, which is different from that of the surrounding areas—hence the term "exotic" terrane.

The Cache Creek Terrane (alternately known as Cache Creek Melange) is a geologic terrane in British Columbia and southern Yukon, Canada. The Cache Creek Terrane consists of Carboniferous to Lower Jurassic volcanic rocks, carbonate rocks, coarse clastic rocks and small amounts of ultramafic rock, chert and argillite.

Three geological formations comprise the Cache Creek Terrane: the Sitlika. Where Terranes Collide: The Geology of Western Canada - Duration: Geology Recommended for you.

Description. Accretion involves the addition of material to a tectonic plate. When two tectonic plates collide, one of the plates may slide under the other, a process known as plate which is being subducted, is floating on the asthenosphere and is pushed against the other, over-riding plate.

Sediment on the ocean floor will often be scraped from the subducting plate. Well I am so glad I bought the fourth edition instead of the fifth: they are essentially the same but had a MASSIVE price difference. This textbook was skimmed by me, mostly, for GEOLbut it really helped solidify ideas from Karla's lectures, and had a fair (read: could've used more) number of diagrams and pictures to explain basic geological processes/5(19).

THE LAYERS OF THE EARTH. The earth is layered in terms of chemical composition as follows: The outer layer is the crust. Continental crust is thick (25–50 km thick), low in density, and has an intermediate average composition; oceanic crust is thin (typically 5–10 km thick), higher in density, and has a mafic average composition.

The explanation is a narrative of almost delicate intricacy, so wonderfully do the various terranes move about, but it is also one of cataclysmic violence when the terranes finally collide with something fixed.

Earth: Portrait of a Planet revolutionized the study of geology by integrating traditional geological concepts with the most recent theoretical advances in geology, including theories of plate tectonics and earth systems science.

Adopted at over schools worldwide, this innovative text has quickly become the best-selling introductory text in the field/5. The audience viewed slides and diagrams that demonstrated how large land masses called "terranes" would collide with, and in essence, become welded onto the North American continent.

Different terranes would collide with our continent at different times in geologic history. Accretionary orogens have much in common, yet there are many differences, some of which appear to change with geologic time. Although much is known about a few accretionary orogens, such as the American Cordillera, Archean greenstone terranes of the Superior province, and terranes of the Appalachian orogen, little effort has gone into comparing and contrasting accretionary orogens.

Figure image description: During the early Triassic period (around Ma), subduction along the west coast of North America caused the Quesnel, Cache Creek, and Stikine Terranes to collide with the continent.

By the Jurassic persion ( Ma), the collision had caused the formation of mountains along the coast and the creation of the. North Cascades Geology Plate Tectonics and Tectonic Terranes Understanding the basic foundation rocks of the North Cascades became possible only with the birth of the concept of plate tectonics in the late s and early s.

The foreign materials (the new rocks) have a different history than the continent they are added to and are called As the accretion of terranes occurs repeatedly through time, the continents grow larger and have different shapes.

Chris Yorath also writes from the perspective of author of the recently released book, Where Terrains Collide (Yorath, ) and coeditor of the Decade of North American Geology volume entitled Geology of the Cordilleran Orogen in Canada (Gabrielse and Yorath, ).

The Sykesville Formation, shown on the map in medium gray, extends from south of the Occoquan River to Falls Church and across the Potomac River, passing through Washington west of Rock Creek into passes under my Burke-Fairfax home in a band barely a half mile wide, then disappears entirely for a two-mile stretch between Little River Turnpike and Fairfax Hospital.

Current models of Cordilleran amalgamation suggest that the Stikinia and Quesnellia terranes once formed a continuous arc system adjacent to the Yukon-Tanana terrane that became wrapped around a remnant ocean basin represented by the Cache Creek terrane (Fig.
