    ermost nappes in the Caledonian mountain chain in Finn-mark, so called Gaissa Nappe Complex, and the bedrock is composed of Neoproterozoic quartzites, sandstones and dolomites (Roberts et al., ). We also paid attention to the network of mounds and ridges, morphologically simi-lar to Maskevarri Ráhppát, on Boaltunoaivi fell of Varanger. The Scandinavian Mountains or the Scandes is a mountain range that runs through the Scandinavian Peninsula. The Scandinavian Mountains are often erroneously thought to be equivalent to the Scandinavian Caledonides, an ancient mountain range and orogen covering roughly the same area. The western sides of the mountains drop precipitously into the North Sea and Norwegian Sea, .

    The Caledonian Mountains are a European mountain range. They run from the Arctic Circle through Scandinavia and Scotland to northwest Ireland. The mountains include the North West Highlands, the Grampian mountains of Scotland and the Jotunheimen of Norway. The highest peak is Mount Galdhøpiggen in Norway, which is 8,ft (2,m) high. It is located about 17 miles [27 km] to the north of Caledonia Mountain. Moncton has a population of 69, people. The next largest community is Dieppe. It is located about 17 miles [ km] to the north of Caledonia Mountain and has a population of 18, people.

    During the clash of Europe with Greenland and North America, which created the Caledonian mountain chain, the mountains probably collapsed along strike, a phenomenon known from the Himalayas today. Major detachment zones developed, and in north Norway these are consistently spoon-shaped, with axes plunging gently to the south-west or north-east.   I picked it up because I have family now living on South Mountain in Nova Scotia, and this case from the s brought notoriety to the area. The book gives an interesting history of the place and of the dissident Puritan families who settled there in the hills in the 18th century, remained insular, and, for generations, poor and poorly educated/5(59).

About million years ago an ancient continent began to split apart as the Iapetus Ocean was born. Layer upon layer of sands, silts and iron and aluminium rich muds were deposited in marine basins within the continent.

It is rather a mountain system in a more geological sense: the rocks which formed the deep-seated root of the Caledonian mountain chain are now exposed at the surface.

The mountains as such, the peaks and valleys, were eroded quite quickly and accordingly disappeared to give way to a rolling lowland at – or partly even below – sea level.

The Caledonian Mountains are a European mountain range. They run from the Arctic Circle through Scandinavia and Scotland to northwest Ireland. The mountains include the North West Highlands, the Grampian mountains of Scotland and the Jotunheimen of Norway. The highest peak is Mount Galdhøpiggen in Norway, which is 2,m (8,ft) high.

During the Caledonian Orogeny several mini-continents (including Avalonia and Baltica) that had broken off from Gondwana were joined to Laurentia by tectonic plate movement, forming a new landmass. It was a long process, taking about million years, and occured mainly between the late Cambrian ( million years ago) and mid Devonian ( An area of approx.

Caledonian is a geographical term used to refer to places, species, or items in or from Scotland, or particularly the Scottish Highlands.

It derives from Caledonia, the Roman name for the area of .The term ‘Caledonian’ is derived from the Latin word for Scotland and was commonly employed in British nineteenth century literature to refer to the Scottish Highlands. The first use of the word in a tectonic sense was in by Suess (English translation:pp.
