What are facts about the Andes?

· The Andes are the second highest Mountain Range in the world with many peaks rising over 20,000 feet.

· The Andes Mountains are the second highest in the world. They stretch 4,500 miles (7,200 km) from north to south, along the west coast South America.

· The first group of people on record to inhabit the Andes mountain range from Ecuador was the Incans.

· The climate in the Andes varies greatly depending on location, altitude, and proximity to the sea. The southern section is rainy and cool; the central Andes are dry and wet. The northern Andes are typically rainy and warm, with an average temperature of 18 Celsius in Colombia. The climate is known to change drastically in rather short distances.

It is the longest mountain range on earth.

What are the different types of mountains?

There are three main types of mountains.

block mountains formed by sections of the earth's crust that have been tilted or lifted up by the movement of two close fault lines, large cracks in the earth's surface. These are usually smaller than other types of mountains and are often separated by valleys.

Volcanic mountains are formed by magma that is pushed out of the earth through a crack or weak place in the earth's crust.

Fold mountains are formed when rock is "squeezed" together. When plates collide, the rock along the edges crumples, creating a huge zig-zag pattern in layers of the earth's crust.

Upwarped mountains are formed when magma pushes up the earth's crust without breaking the surface. This creates a rounded mountain that gently slopes toward the surrounding land.

How were the Andes formed?

The Andes were formed due to compressional (or squashing stress) due to the presence of convergent plate boundary just off the western coast of the continent of South America. Here the oceanic crust of the Nazca plate is being forced against the continental crust which forms the continent of South America. The collision causes stress to build up which in turn causes deformation and uplift of the continental crust forming fold mountains (in this case the Andes).

Meanwhile the denser oceanic crust is forced under the continental crust back into the mantle. This process is known as subduction and generates magma, which rises towards the surface forming volcanoes which in turn contribute to mountain building.
