      The Cordillera - Canadian Geographic Regions From the Cordillera to the Appalachian, Canadian Geographic Regions celebrates Canada's diverse and unique landscapes. The regions' peoples, history, geology, climate, plants and animals, and environment come to life in these attractive and enlightening volumes. Beautiful full-colour pictures and informative maps complement the text in . relationship of the main late Paleozoic volcano-sedimentary sequences of the northern Canadian Cordillera and the surrounding terranes. J:\cjes\cjes\Evp J AM.

      The Western Cordillera was created by the North American and Pacific Plates colliding, which caused folding, faulting, and volcanic activity. The Western Cordillera has three sections. They are: Eastern Mountains. The Eastern Mountains are made up of two mountain ranges. These two mountain ranges are the Rocky Mountains and the Columbia Mountains. Cordillera Neo-Volcánica, (Spanish: “Neo-Volcanic Axis”), also called Eje Volcánico, relatively young range of active and dormant volcanoes traversing central Mexico from Cape Corrientes on the west coast, southeast to Jalapa and Veracruz on the east coast. The cordillera forms the southern boundary of Mexico’s Mesa Central and includes the volcanic peaks of Pico de Orizaba (18,

The Northern Cordilleran Volcanic Province (NCVP), formerly known as the Stikine Volcanic Belt, is a geologic province defined by the occurrence of Miocene to Holocene volcanoes in the Pacific Northwest of North belt of volcanoes extends roughly north-northwest from northwestern British Columbia and the Alaska Panhandle through Yukon to the Southeast Fairbanks Census Area of far Location: British Columbia, Canada.

The geography of northwestern British Columbia and Yukon, Canada is dominated by volcanoes of the Northern Cordilleran Volcanic Province formed due to continental rifting of the North American is the most active volcanic region in Canada.

Some of the volcanoes are notable for their eruptions, for instance, Tseax Cone for its catastrophic eruption estimated to have occurred in the 18th.

Nearby volcanoes in Alaska and the western United States may also affect Canada. (Mount Baker, Washington, is the American volcano that poses the greatest hazard to Canada because it is only 23 km south of the Canadian border and is located close to the large population centres of.

The Canadian Cordillera, the westernmost of the major physiographic and geological regions of Canada, is an area of rugged mountains, plateaus, lowlands, valleys, and seaways. This region extends from the International Boundary on the south to Beaufort Sea on the north and from Pacific Ocean and Alaska on the west to the Interior Plains on the.

The late Paleozoic volcanic rocks of the northern Canadian Cordillera lying between Ancestral North America to the east and the accreted terranes of the Omineca belt to the west record early arc and rift magmatism along the paleo-Pacific margin of the North American by: During the Quaternary Period, there have been scores of volcanic eruptions in the western Canadian Cordillera.

Most Quaternary volcanic centres in this region are small and have formed through the eruption of low-viscosity, silica-poor magma. Future eruptions of this type probably would have only limited localized effects.

The deeply eroded remnants of ancient volcanic belts are found in volcanically inactive regions such as the Canadian Shield. In Canada, geologically young volcanoes are confined to the Western Cordillera.

The Garibaldi belt of southwestern BC includes many supraglacial and sub-glacial volcanoes. Volcanoes in the Canadian part of the Wrangell Volcanic Belt erupted between and million years ago.

They were fed by lava that seeped up along a leaky transform fault. Southwestern British Columbia is at the northern end of the Juan de Fuca subduction zone, and part of the Cascade Volcanic Arc that extends south through Washington and.

There are many geologically active volcanoes along the Canadian Cordillera in British Columbia and the Yukon. Recurrent earthquakes below our feet and gigantic mountain ranges rising majestically upward remind us that this part of Canada is geologically active.

The possibility of an eruption, even a large explosive one, cannot be ruled out. The only notable concentration of earthquakes in the Canadian Cordillera away from the coastal zone occurs in the McNaughton Lake region of British Columbia, off.

Regional Studies is a collection of papers that deals with strata-bound mineral deposits in the Eastern Alps, in the Canadian Cordillera, in north-central, and southwest England.

Other papers describe southern African stratiform ore deposits and the genesis of Irish base-metal deposits. Canadian geology spans four billion years of Earth history.

The oldest rocks are preserved in the stable Archean crustal blocks of which the largest include the Superior, Slave, Hearne and North Atlantic cratons. These blocks are also the repository for much of. There are also freshwater glaciers in the Canadian Rockies, the Coast Mountains and the Arctic Cordillera.

Canada is geologically active, having many earthquakes and potentially active volcanoes, notably the Mount Meager massif, Mount Garibaldi, the Mount Cayley massif, and the Mount Edziza volcanic complex.

The Canadian Shield expands to ’s of square miles of exposed rock, tundra and boreal forest which spans from north of the Great Lakes up to the Arctic Ocean. Known as the only part of North America to have been permanently elevated above sea level, there is an abundance of timber and minerals (ore) available throughout.
