      The Western Cordillera has a maritime climate. The weather is very wet during the fall and winter. Parts of this region being the wettest areas on Earth. Summers are cool by comparison to the rest of the country, and Winters being short, makes the . (uncoloured) map that is in preparation and hopefully will be available for distribution with the guide book. The second part is a road log for four days of geological sightseeing by motorcoach. The route follows paved highways and there are a few .

      The Western Cordillera region runs along the west coast of Canada, running down the Yukon Region all the way down to British Columbia and Alberta, the region is a series of mountains and valleys ranging great heights. The mountain is made up of igneous rock that formed the mountains over years ago. The Western Cordillera is located on the west coast of Canada, and is present in the Yukon Territories, British Columbia, and western Alberta. This landform region of Canada was formed roughly 80 million years ago in the Mesozoic Era by the encounter of the North American Plate and the heavier Pacific plate.

      The Cordilleran orogen in south-eastern Alaska includes 14 distinct metamorphic belts that make up three major metamorphic complexes, from east to west: the Coast plutonic-metamorphic complex; the Glacier Bay-Chichagof plutonic-metamorphic complex; and the Chugach plutonic-metamorphic complex. Each of these complexes is related to a major subduction event. When it comes to rock types, the Western Cordillera consists of 3; sedimentary, metamorphic, and igneous rock. Minerals commonly found in this region consist of gold, silver, zinc, copper, lead and fossil fuels such as coal, gas and oil. Natural resources include timber, grasslands, and fish. Vegetation found in the higher altitudes include low.

Mona. A "cordillera" is a chain of mountains, and there are many different chains of mountains in Canada's Cordillera region.

In between the mountains there are fertile valleys, lakes and rolling hills. ON the coast, there are deep harbours, sheltered waterways, and deltas.

The region also includes very old forests, rivers, deserts, and beaches. The Western Cordillera runs along the west coast of North America covering from Yukon to British Columbia. This is home to many young mountains separated by plains and small rivers.

The rock that makes up these beautiful mountains are igneous and metamorphic. Cordillera Physical Regions of Canada Grade 5 Social Studies. The Cordillera: Life by the Mountains.

The Cordillera is located on the west coast of Canada and includes British Columbia, the Yukon, southwest Alberta and part of North West Territories. The climate of the Cordillera's coast is mild, wet and rarely has snow that stays.

The interior. • Made of sedimentary rock but have some metamorphic intrusions • Contain a wide variety of metallic minerals • More mining in the Columbian Mountains Interior Plateaus • Centre of the Cordillera • Series of rugged plateaus • to m in height among high hills and small mountains • Composed of metamorphic and igneous rock.

The Western Cordillera was formed from the collision of the North American Plate and the Pacific Plate, which lifted the region. The great height of the mountains prove that this region is still very young.

These mountains consist of all sedimentary, igneous and metamorphic rocks. The Monashee decollement, a crustal-scale shear zone in the hinterland (Omineca belt) of the southern Canadian Cordillera is interpreted as correlating with the sole thrust of the Rocky Mountain Foreland belt.

LITHOPROBE seismic reflection data indicate that the shear zone is rooted in the lower crust beneath the Intermontane by: The interior and western belts of the Canadian Cordillera include all of western Canada west of the Richardson and Mackenzie mountains, the Northern Rocky Mountain Trench, and the Columbia Mountains.

The regions occupy a large part of British Columbia, most of the Yukon Territory, and a small part of the southwestern Mackenzie district; and. Western Cordillera has alot of wild life and vegatation, it contains 5 out of the 8 major Canadian forest zones.

The Western Cordillera is made up of igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks.
