A mountain is a landform that rises high above the surrounding terrain in a limited area. They are made from rocks and earth. These mighty chunks rise all over the world, including the oceans. They usually have steep, sloping sides and sharp or rounded ridges. The highest point is called the peak or summit. Most geologists classify a mountain as a landform that rises at least 1,000 feet (300 meters) or more above its surrounding area.
The world's tallest mountain ranges form when pieces of Earth's crust—called plates—smash against each other, in a process called plate tectonics, and buckle up like the hood of a car in a head-on collision. Volcanic ones form when molten rock from deep inside the Earth erupts through the crust and piles up on itself. Plateau mountains form as colliding tectonic plates push up the land without folding or faulting. They are then shaped by weathering and erosion.
These giant works of nature often serve as geographic features that define natural borders of countries. Their height can influence weather patterns, stalling storms that roll off the oceans and squeezing water from the clouds. The other side is often much drier. The rugged landscapes even provide refuge—and protection—for fleeing and invading armies.
