Asian Geological History And General Considerations. Asia is not only the largest continent on the planet but the youngest and most complex continent. Although development began four billion years ago in Asia. Higher than half of the continents are still active in the earthquake. Producing arcs of the new continental material technique in the eastern …
Asian Geological History
Asia has the largest mountain on the surface of the Earth. Tibetan Plateau and the mountains around the Himalayas, the Karakoram Mountains. The Hindu Kush, the Pamirs, the Kunlun Mountains, and the Tianshan Mountains. With its huge scale and young, Asia has many forms of earth’s land extreme surface. Because of its highest and lowest points, the longest coastline and the largest continental shelf zone. Asia’s vast mountains, diverse coastlines, and extensive continental plains and valleys have had a great impact on human history. Asia produces many fossil fuels (oil, gas, and coal), and a major contributor to the global production of multiple minerals. (for example, three-fifths of the world’s tin) emphasizes important of his geology for the world’s population Welfare.
The Asian form masks a complex geological history, before responsible for the active deformation of the existing landscape. It’s structural unit determined according to the Asian movement arrangement. The part that formed or is now part of a single tectonic plate. Whose configuration derived from the formation and movement of the plate. Defined from those of the structural unit according to its fossil alignment (ie, now inactive). So, convenient to discuss Asian tectonic frameworks based on two separate maps. One showing its ancient tectonic units (the oldest one) and the other showing its new tectonic units (new and active).
