               While tracing the processes that formed the Canadian Cordillera, the video explains
               several concepts of geology, including: plate tectonics, terranes, superterranes, melange,
               thrust faults and erratics. On the breakup of the supercontinent, North America and the
               other continents were formed. Later, the Intermontain and Insular superterranes were
               pushed into the North American plate by the collision and subduction of the Juan de Fuca
               plate. The program explains: the formation of the Coastal Range and Rocky Mountains;
               how erosion by water and ice sheets have shaped the land; and how the processes are
               continuing, as shown by volcanoes and earthquakes. (Quadra Productions)
