A cordillera is the Spanish name for an extensive mountain range or system of ranges.. The western Cordillera is in North America and includes the Sierra Nevada, the Coastal …and Cascade ranges, and the Rocky Mountains. It extends through Central America, Mexico, the U.S. and Canada.. Its South American counterpart is called the Andean Cordillera.
The Western Cordillera is in the west part of Canada. In the provinces Yukon,Alberta,Britsh Columbia, and Northwest Territories.It runs along the western edge of North and So…uth America. In Canada it streches from the Canadian-United states border at 49degreesN latitude to almost 70degrees N latitude. HEY NO! ITS IN CANADA! YEAH, CANANANANDA **** YOU ITS GOT CANADA! YAY CANANADA! yay...

There are five major, external factors inpacting the processes of soil formation: climate, organisms, relief (topography), parent bedrock material, time. Here you need to l…ook at parent bedrock and topography in hotter climates. Leaching is done by irrigation or precipitation removing the soluble substances from the eroded particles of rock that make up the mineral content. Leaching is strongest when the bedrock mineral erodes to granular sand. This is most typical with volcanic lava rock that cooled above ground, very quickly to become crystalline. The smaller silt and clay particles that erode from magma (noncrystalline rock) are carried farthest to deposit into the valleys. This leaves the larger sand particles closest to their point of erosion making the soil very porous and prone to leaching. Calcified soils have plenty of calcium and magnesium salts left after the acids leached away. This is because the rain that falls is more likely to evaporate than to flow through to a drainage system. This happens in inland regions of continents that dry out as playas that formed in desert valleys. The fine silt & clay minerals eroded from the mountains and deposited as shale in the valley. In wet playas leaching leaves the basic ions that cause salinaization, alkalization and calcification. Evaporation causes these soluble ions to move upwards in the layers, drawn by capillary action.
