How did the himalaya mountains form?

There is wide agreement among geologists that the Himalayas began forming roughly 50-70 million years ago when the northward-moving Indo-Australian tectonic plate began colliding with the relatively stationary Eurasian Plate. The boundary of the collision is called the Tibetan Plateau, which was shattered and pushed upward to form the great Himalyan peaks such as Mt Everest.

The Indo-Australian Plate continues to be driven northward, sliding under the Tibetan Plateau at the rate of about 6.7 cm (2.6 inches) per year and causes the Plateau to continue to be pushed upward. The Indo-Australian Plate has slowed to less than half of its original velocity, but it appears likely that it will continue moving northward for roughly another 10 million years, creating a Himalayan-like landscape as far north as 1500 km (930 miles) from the present range of mountains.

How do you time a daihatsu rocky?

From first principles I did my Daihatsu Move:

1) Deactivated automatic advance as indicated by sticker under bonnet lid. Used a bent metal paper clip.

2) Found timing "mark". This was under a rubber bung in the cambelt cover near the top. It gave a view of the main gear from the side which had a series of large holes to reduce the gears weight. However there was one distinctly smaller hole drilled as well. When the piston 1 spark plug was removed and I could see the piston was near top dead center the small hole lined up with the hole in the cam cover indicating this was the "mark". With the timing light triggered by piston one I set this hole in the gear to be centred in the hole left in the cover when removed the rubber bung. Changing the timing is as normal for many cars. Loosening the distributer and rotating it with my hand while the engine is running and the timing light on. Be careful as the fan can come on as the motor heats up. Also if you have a ignition leak you could be in for a shock 8-). Should be done at idling speed around 800 RPM

Having tried adjusting both sides of the centered position for the hole centering gave the best result. Dont forget to remove the paper clip at the end and tighten up the distributor again!

In summary:

1)Jumper computer to stop auto advance.

2)Hole in cam cover-Center small hole in cam gear with hole in cover using timing light and rotating loosened distributor.

3)Unjumper computer and re-tighten distributor. Replace bung in cover.

Maybe its similar on a Rocky model? Maybe you will have to work out what variations there are to this on your model from first principals the way I did.

Why is magnetic declination important?

Because if you need to use your compass to figure out which direction is north,

then you need to know by how much the direction the compass points is wrong,

and which way. That's the magnetic declination.

Where are the Rocky Mountains?

The Rocky Mountains are found in western North America,from the northern Canadian provinces of British Columbia and Alberta,southward through the western United States' states ofIdaho, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado,Utah, and northern New Mexico.

The Rocky Mountains, commonly known as the Rockies, are a major mountain range in western North America. The Rocky Mountains stretch more than 3,000 miles (4,800 km) from the northernmost part of British Columbia, in western Canada, to New Mexico, in the southwestern United States. Within the North American Cordillera, the Rockies are somewhat distinct from the Pacific Coast Ranges and the Cascade Range and Sierra Nevada which all lie further to the west.

What states did Lewis and Clark go through?

Before Lewis met up with Clark, he began the expedition on August 30, 1803 in Pittsburgh PA. Lt. William Clark would offer to join Lewis on the expedition weeks later on at Camp Dubois (in present-day Indiana). From there, they sailed down the Ohio River towards St. Louis.

And being that the expedition began in Pittsburgh, states they passed through would include: Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Indiana, Kentucky, Illinois, then Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana, Idaho, Oregon and Washington. So they traveled through 6 states before reaching Missouri, and then 9 more states after that.

If you don't believe me that the expedition began in Pittsburgh and NOT St. Louis, then follow the related link to the Louis and Clark Journals' first entry. As we all know, the common American history textbook likes to smudge the details.

How are fold mountains formed?

Fold mountains are formed from the collision of continental tectonic plates. Since neither plate subducts under the other, the colliding plates wrinkle and fold like a rug being pushed into a wall.

What actually is a mountain?

Mountains are formed when the land is being pushed up by strong forces in the Earth, such as plate tectonics. Some mountains ar formed by areas being thrust up over other areas; some mountains are volcanoes that have died out, or become extinct. In addition to the last answer, a mountain has to be over 2,000 feet, otherwise it is just a hill. There are many contributing factors that go into the formation of mountains. These can be uplift from plate tectonics, or vulcanism. (A volcano, if it is over 2,000 ft., whether active or otherwise can still be considered a mountain). The major controlling factors of orogeny (mountain building) come after the actual mountain has come about. There must be an equilibrium between uplift and erosion (glacial or fluvial) in order to maintain the mountain, otherwise it would be eroded back to base level (generally considered to be sea level) - "Tectonic aneurism" hypothesis. A mountain is generally steeper than a hill.
