Which mountains systems has the feature of syntaxial bend?
Nanga parbat (himalaya mountain)
Plate movemens sometimes cause the crust to warp, or bend, downward. The result is a basin. A basin is a broad, bowl-shapped valley. For example, the central valley of California is a huge basin with the sierras and coast ranges on either side. As these mountains rose, the curist forming the central valley's floor was bend downward.

Big Bend Country is a region of extremes. The desert is dry and hot in the day and cool at night. Plants and animals are adapted for the desert. The mountains provide cold weather in the winter, where on occasion it even snows. Forests grow on the slopes. The slopes of these mountains can grow trees because the high, cooler mountain tops cause precipitation to fall from clouds moving over the peaks.
the caucasus mountains are fold mountains - you can see this by their shape... they are tall and cone shaped; also in a forever extending line, which proves that their formation is well and truly fold 2nd answer: they are indeed fold mountains, fold mountains are formed when two techtonic plate converge and move towards each other, they buckle up and bend forming a mountain.
Volcanic mountains are formed when converging plate ( plate tectonics) move away from each other, then magma erupts upwards and thus mountains are formed! Folded Mountains are formed when diverging plate ( plate tectonics) come together instead of moving away, they don't bend when they connect which each other they make faults and this is how folded mountains are formed! Subduction occurs when one plate goes underneath another plate which is called transform plate!........ :)
Most mountains are metamorphic due to the environment they are formed. The folding occurs deep below the surface where the rocks are only partially melted, and under increasing pressures and temperatures. This causes the rocks to bend (fold) and recrystallize into metamorphic versions of the origin rocks.
When rock layers bend due to stress in the earths crust as in example of two continental plates converging what is the answer folding or rifting?
The mountains and Basins region is found in far west Texas. There tend to be 150 mountains in the ranges. There are many basins, plateaus and deserts and rivers in the regions. One of the many known mountains and basins regions is Big Bend National Park. These regions are the driest of all regions. The natural vegetation include grasses, shrubs, desert plants in plateaus and basins and pine forests in the mountains. This region is…
Big Bend National Park is fairly warm in November. It is a beautiful place to visit. There are three distinct landscapes in the park: mountains, desert and river valley (around the Rio Grande). It is a large park with lots of hiking trails and beautiful scenery you can see from your car. There is a lodge in the Chisos Mountains, and there are campgrounds. The agave are magnificent, as is all the other desert flora…
