what are the process involved in the formation of mountain explain? ???????????

Mountains are formed due to the disturbances on the earth's crust. The forces responsible can be the techtonic forces (interior of the earth Eg. eathquakes and the graditional forces (on the surface of the earth). Due to these forces, there is a disturbance on the earth's crust and the land becomes a bit higher than its usual height.

A mountain is a huge landmass which rises more than 900 m above mean sea level.
 
FOLD MOUNTAINS- When the rock strata of the fold mountains were laid  down as sediments in water bodies. the rock strata was later uplifted by the horizontal compressional forces which crumpled the top layer of the sediments into archs and troughs,

 
BLOCK MOUNTAINS- are formed by the horizontal tensional forces which cause cracks or faults in the earth's crust.these faults can break the crust into blocks.when these blocks are raised,block mountains are formed. the block mountains have flat tops and steep slopes.

VOLCANIC MOUNTAINS- formation of a volcanic mountain is associated with volcanic activities.when a volcano erupts,hot magma is thrown out with great force. this magma accumulates around the vent of the volcano and generally forms a tall cone-shaped mountain known as the volcanic mountain.

Mountain formation refers to the geological processes that underlie the formation of mountains. These processes are associated with large-scale movements of the Earth's crust (tectonic plates).[1] Foldingfaultingvolcanic activityigneous intrusion and metamorphism can all be parts of the orogenic process of mountain building.[2] The formation of mountains is not necessarily related to the geological structures found on it.[3]

The understanding of specific landscape features in terms of the underlying tectonic processes is called tectonic geomorphology, and the study of geologically young or ongoing processes is called neotectonics.[4][clarification needed]

From the late 18th century until its replacement by plate tectonics in the 1960s geosyncline theory was used to explain much mountain-building.[5]

These trees have thick branches allowing birds and other flyers to call it home. Temperature in the rain forest is between 70 to 95 degrees year round. Because this is the highest layer temperature changes are common. This layer also is the first to receive the rain.Emergent Layer.?The top layer of the rainforest?is the emergent layer. Here, trees as tall as 60 meters (200 feet) dominate the skyline. Foliage is often sparse on tree trunks, but spreads wide as the trees reach the sunny upper layer, where they photosynthesize the sun's rays.Emergent Layer.?The top layer of the rainforest?is the emergent layer.

They are higher because they are able to trap more sunlight to help them make more food to grow. Emergent trees are supported by buttress roots which prevent them from blowing over in high winds.The emergent layer consists of the tallest trees in the rainforest and they can grow up to 60 metres.
