A volcanic plug, also called a volcanic neck or lava neck, is a volcanic object created when magma hardens within a vent on an active volcano. When present, a plug can cause an extreme build-up of pressure if rising volatile-charged magma is trapped beneath it, and this can sometimes lead to an explosive eruption. Glacial erosion can lead to exposure of the plug on one side, while a long slope.

We begin with a discussion of the major North American rock successions and then discuss various aspects of the Cordillera generally from east to west.

This belt of volcanoes extends roughly north-northwest from northwestern Location: British Columbia, Canada. The Cordillera of western Canada was repeatedly enveloped by a continental ice sheet, known as the Cordilleran Ice Sheet, during the Pleistocene and latest Pliocene (Flint, ; Clague, ; Jackson and Clague, ).At its maximum extent, the Cordilleran Ice Sheet and its satellite glaciers covered almost all of British Columbia, southern Yukon Territory, and southern Alaska, and extended.

This book provides a comprehensive overview of the geological evolution of the Northern Andes and contiguous shield areas, with a focus upon Colombia. Updated geological interpretations are supported by modern lithogeochemical, seismic, gravity and magnetic data and radiogenic isotope and radiometric age determinations.

The Cordilleran Ice Sheet is thought to have covered westernmost Canada until ab years ago, even though the warming and sea level rise of the last deglaciation had begun more than a thousand years earlier. This out-of-phase behavior has puzzled glaciologists because it is not clear what mechanisms could account for it.

A cordillera is an extensive chain of mountains or mountain term is borrowed from the Spanish word, with the same meaning.

The Spanish word originates from cordilla, a diminutive of "cuerda" or "rope". It is most commonly used in the field of physical geography.

The term is particularly applied to the various ranges of the Andes of South America, and less frequently to other. This book provides a comprehensive overview of the geological evolution of the Northern Andes and contiguous shield areas, with a focus upon Colombia.

The Cordilleran Orogenic Belt is a region of dominant Mesozoic and Cenozoic deformation that extends for 8, km along the western side of North America from Alaska to Guatemala and Honduras, with a width of –1, km.

West-ward from Alaska it is separated by only a short stretch of shallow water from comparable orogenic belts in Asia. Overview and accommodations for the GSA Cordilleran Section Meeting, May in Pasadena, California.
