Formation of Fold Mountains using the contraction theory;

  • During the formation of the surface rocks cooled and contracted faster than those of the interior
  • Since the interior was cooling at a slower rate the surface rocks started wrinkling in order to fit on the cooling and contracting rocks of the interior
  • These wrinkles became Fold Mountains
