Alps - Alps - Human impact on the Alpine environment: The early travelers to the Alps were greatly inspired by the pristine beauty of what they saw, and from their inspiration sprang the modern popularity of the Alpine region.

With popularity, however, came growth; and the impact of so many people caused a steady degradation of the Alpine environment beginning in the midth century.years ago a new phase of the reptilian age began.

The great event of this period was the evolution and decline of the dinosaurs. Land-animal life reached its greatest development, in point of size, and had virtually perished from the face of the earth by the end of this age. The dinosaurs evolved in all sizes from a species less than two feet long up to the huge.

The Dolomites (Permian–Cretaceous) are an internal part of the Southern Alps; they are a northern Italian chain that emerged during the deformation of the passive continental margin of the Adriatic (= Apulian Plate) of the South Alpine–Apennine Block (Dercourt et al.,Fourcade et al.,Bossellini,Cecca,Stampfli and.

This resulted in uplift of central Westland and produced the majestic range of the Southern Alps, with its steep, straight western front the Alpine Fault. Between 23 and 10 million years ago the western side of the Alpine Fault was moving northeast relative to the eastern side at a rate of between cm per year.

Rapid erosion and frequent rock fall in the steep glacier catchments of the Southern Alps means that in general the rock wall surfaces of the valleys are regularly being refreshed. Thus, the material delivered to the glaciers and subsequently deposited in moraines is unlikely to have carried significant pre-exposure.Books about the Southern Alps New Zealand's Southern Alps provide a spectacular spine to the South Island separating the more popular East coast from the more rural land that slope away to the West.
