Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 4, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Scott Parker, age 12, of Muncie, In- diana, for his question- What made the Appalachian Mountains? The northern arm of the Ap- palachians was made about 300 million years ago and the south- ern arm arose about 100 mil- lion years later. The layers of faulted and folded rocks reveal when the massive mountain chain was built and also part of the story of how it was built. The answers to what made it are deep below the rocky sur- face crust. In the past few years, earth scientists have found evidence that mounlain- making may be linked to a lot of other stupendous geograph- ical happenings. The term for mountain-mak- ing is which means deforming the earth's crust. The term meaning "equally suggests why and how these massive crustal ridges are pushed up, cracked and stack- ed like multiple rocky sand- wiches. It seems that the glo- bal crust strives to keep its weight e v e v I y distributed. Countless tons of surface debris constajitly are shifted by the erosion of the weather and run- ning water. When these heavy deposits accumulate in enorm- ous trenches, mountains arise to adjust the crustal weight. The northern arm of the Ap- palachians stretches from New- foundland to Virginia. Some 400 million years ago, this enorm- mous arm was a geosyncline a long, deep trench fed silly slreams. Through the ages. Ihe streams dumped gravels and sandy clays into Ihe huge dilch and marine creatures of Ihe Paleozoic Era left their fossils in its muddy floor Ages later, the clogging geosyncline he- came a soggy swamp. Scrawny coal forests grew there, sharing the steamy air with giant onflies while whopping sala- manders wallowed in the mud. About 300 million years ago, the accumulated deposits be- came critical and isoslasy be- gan adjusting the weight of the old geosyncline. The mas- sive cnisl arose in more or less parallel ridges, generating en- ormous heat and pressure deep below the surface Volcnnos erupted igneous lava, earth- cuakes helped to crack and slack the deformed crustal blocks in ragged ranges of joung mountains. The stupen- dous project look many millions of years. Meantime, another geosyn- cline was filling wilh silly de- posits. About 200 million years ago, its weight became critical and the southern arm of the Appalachians begaji lo arise. Its younger ranges now reach southward from (he northern arm as far as Alabama, mak- ing the entire Appalachian chain aboul 1.500 miles long. Time and weather have round- ed and eroded the crests. And during the ice ages, the ranges as far south as New York were scarred and denud- ed by glaciers, Nowadays, scientists favor a global earth. view They of the restless see the Appal- achians and other enormous j-anges as local features relat- ed to somewhat myslerious planetary forces. They have just about enough evidence to prove that the drifting contui- erls have been inching apart through the ages. The magnetic poles and even the geographic poles also are shifting. The'c is evidence that these mysterious global activities helped to build the high Himalayas. Possibly they also operated behind the scenes when the Appalachians were made.
