This storyboard does not have a description.
Yes, it was fromed from convergent boundaries. A convergent boundary happens when atleast 2 tectonic plates bump into eachother, and in this case forms a mountain
do you know how this mountain was formed?
Here I'll show you
So how do they create mountains?
Imagine these 2 sponges are tectonic plates. and they are floating on the mantle.
I'm getting to it!
In the mantle there are convection currents which cause the plates to move. So the convection currents cause the plates to come together and collide
so If a mountain just started forming today, what would it look like in the future?
A mountain is formed when 1 or both plates are lifted, but this will take quite some time.
Well Mt. Everest's 5.4979 miles high, grows at a rate of about 4 mm/yr, and is still growing. So, depending on the convection currents it could be as small as a hill or as tall as Mt. Everest.
