from the subduction zone in Oregon extends only 100 miles or so in from the coast, and even the Rockies required a special explanation as to why they are so far inland; the Appalachians are too far away to have been affected by subduction under Oregon. We can see that the Appalachians don’t make a circle around a hot spot; they make a long belt parallel to the east coast. The Appalachians are way older than Death Valley, and with the Great Plains in-between, it is clear that the influence of Death Valley does not extend to rumpling rocks near the east coast.Your Response:CPoints Earned:1/14.Icebergs float in water and continents float above the mantle because:Points Earned:1/1
