(from west to east): France, Switzerland, Italy, Monaco, Liechtenstein, Austria, Germany, and Slovenia.[3] The mountains were formed over tens of millions of years as the African and Eurasian tectonic plates collided. Extreme shortening caused by the event resulted in marine sedimentary rocks rising by thrusting and folding into high mountain peaks such as Mont Blanc

and the Matterhorn. Mont Blanc

Ravine
A ravine is a landform narrower than a canyon and is often the product of streamcutting erosion.[1] Ravines are typically classified as larger in scale than gullies, although smaller than valleys.[1] Definition[edit]Ravines may or may not have active streams flowing along the downslope channel which originally formed them; moreover, often they are characterized by intermittent streams, since their geographic scale may not be sufficiently large to support a perennial watercourse.[2]A ravine is a deep valley which is formed due to linear/dendritic fluvial erosion of loose unconsolidated and bare soils byes.Other terms for ravine includecleuch dell ghout (Nevis) gill or ghyll glen gorge Gravina in Puglia kloof (South Africa) chine (Isle of Wight)Notes[edit]^ a b Definition of "ravine" at Merriam-Webster ^ Christopher G.
