Not much farming. . The economies in the Western Cordillera are based on logging, mining, and tourism.
The Pacific Plate subducted under the North American Plate in the Mesozoic Era. Glaciers eroded mountains and valleys, forming rolling hills.
There are several rock types in the western cordillera. There aremetallic minerals found in igneous rock. Non-metallic mineralsfound in metamorphic and sedimentary rock. There are also energyminerals found in oil shale.
i don't know... but if ur trying to do ur h\w don't u even think about it.. OK!!

Yes, on Maui and most places. Of course active volcanoes can be deadly. But both of the volcanoes on Maui are dormant. Yes, there are really two. The more prominent one is Haleakala, on the east/south part of the island, and is part of the Haleakala National Park, that actually stretches all the way… down to the east coast at Kipuhulu and the "Sacred Pools". People hike in the crater, on its slopes, and through the rain forests and deserts around its base. People swim and dive into the many waterfall pools, most people visit the summit and the Visitors' Center there. There are horseback rides through the crate, heliocopter tours over it, people get up to reach the summit to witness dawn from 10,000 feet up, and some "adventurous" people "ride down the volcano" meaning they join of group of people on bicycles and coast down from the summit. There are even camp sites where you can pitch a tent at both the park entry and Kipahulu. And when I say "both", actually the north/west side of Maui is also the result of volcanic activity and significant erosion. The 'Iao Valley is practically in the center of the "West Maui Mountains" known in Hawai'ian as Mauna Kahalwai and Hale Mahina (ref. Wikipedia) and you can drive right up into it -- it's a tropical rain forest in a way and for those who don't have the stamina for the "Road to Hana" is a taste of how lush things are. There is another park on the way to the Valley that is interesting, as well as some museums. So all in all both "volcanoes" provide a lot of opportunities for tourists. ( Full Answer )

Two of the most major cities within the Cordilleran Boundaries are Vancouver and Mexico City. There is a variety of vegetation that grows in the Cordillera region. The vegetation includes: douglas fir, forage grass, white spruce, lodge pole pine, ponderosa pine, and many other grasses. This vegetat…ion grows here because it rains a lot and the soil is good. A variety of wildlife can be found throughout the Cordillera region. Some of the animals are: falcons, woodland caribou, deer, moose, squirrel, wolverines, grizzly bears, mountain goats, and golden eagles. These animals make this region their home because of the mountains and because of the trees, grass, landscape, food, and beautiful nature. ( Full Answer )
There are five major, external factors inpacting the processes of soil formation: climate, organisms, relief (topography), parent bedrock material, time. Here you need to look at parent bedrock and topography in hotter climates. Leaching is done by irrigation or precipitation removing the solu…ble 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.
