...Running head: Mountain Belt Formation Differences between the Himalayas and Appalachian Mountain Ranges Roberto Fernandez Axia College I chose to write my narrative about the two most different and popular mountain ranges in the world. The Himalayas are located in Asia and are know for some of the highest peaks in the world, some of which are K2 and Mt. Everest. I chose the Himalayas for the popularity and of course, it has the highest peak in the world. The Appalachians are located in North America. I chose the Appalachians because I have lived in New York and New Jersey my whole life and I felt I had to pay homage to them. The Himalayas span over six countries in the Asian continent. India, Tibet, Afghanistan, Nepal, China and Pakistan all have the Himalayas as a permanent resident. These mountains are responsible for three of the planets foremost rivers which are the Ganga-Brahmaputra, Yangtze and Indus. Over a billion inhabitants depend on the flowing waters from these rivers. One of the newest mountain belts on the planet are the Himalayas. Based on the premise of plate tectonics the Himalayas were formed over 70 million years ago during the Upper Cretaceous period. They are the effect of orogeny (continental collision) down the convergent boundary amid the Eurasion and Indo-Australian plates.

The level of involvement of the consumers for the toothpaste category is low. The branding activities done by various brands has created awareness for this category.

Himalaya Shampoo

...familiar and sounds fancy it would yield the expected results. The ads for both Himalaya herbal protein shampoo and Himalaya Protein shampoo are quite similar. They both play on the emotions of the consumer. In one a woman is depicted as someone who’s attractive to the opposite sex and who invites anger and envy in other women because she has enviable hair. They also depicted people to have low self esteem because they have badly maintained hair. In the second a woman is trying to get a lift but to no avail as she has very damp and oily hair. But once she uses Himalaya Protein shampoo she was being noticed. These ads target women who have the same kind of problems and who might want to be known to have good hair. Consumers who are motivated by this ad are those who strive to be recognized just as the two women in the ad. The Himalaya Herbal Protein shampoo ad also focus on the fact that it is safe and 100 percent herbal. The ad also plays on the traditional appeal the product has. In India people are already in awe of products which have natural ingredients so this adds as an extra motivating factor for customers to buy the brand. ………………………………………………..

...Instability in the Himalayas: Earthquake in Nepal All life is at the mercy of nature. Whether it feeds and nurtures a species, or drives it to extinction, all life on earth is controlled by the forces of the natural world. There are many examples of the violent and catastrophic effects of natural disasters, but perhaps none is more relevant to the present than earthquakes. There are “only about 15 earthquakes a year in the world — out of 1.3 million total temblors — are magnitude-7.0 or higher, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The devastating earthquake and resulting tsunami that hit parts of Japan in 2011, killing thousands of people, was magnitude-9.0” (geologyin). On the 25th of April, 2015, an earthquake of a magnitude of 7.8 by the Richter scale struck Nepal, leading to thousands of casualties and leaving the country in a state of emergency. Although the immediate effect of the earthquake was the loss of many human lives, the geology of the Himalayas was also strongly affected. Earthquakes are such powerful agents of natural disaster, they not only re-shape the biotic factors of a region, but they also re-shape the abiotic factors of its impacted area. Nepal is a small country located north of India and south of China. Its topography ranges from lowlands in the south, and hilly and mountainous regions in the north. The climate is just as varied and ranges from tropical to alpine (Bradford). Its size is relatively similar to Arkansas, about 56,827 square......

...der Plattentektonik, verschiebt sich der Himalaya jährlich um ein bis zwei Zentimeter. Zwei kontinentale Platten drifteten die vergangenen 70 Millionen Jahre aufeinander zu, die indische Platte und die eurasiatische Platte. Als sie schließlich vor ca. 40 Millionen Jahren kollidierten, wurde so das höchste und mächtigste Gebirge der Welt, der Himalaya herausgehoben. -Subduktionszone, Eine Kruste taucht unter die Andere. Das bewirkte das Entstehen von Himalaya. Fossilienfunde in Tibet zeigen, dass die Entstehung des Himalayas auch große Auswirkungen auf das Klima hatte. Lag Tibet früher viel näher am Äquator, ist es heute eine aride Trockenzone im Wetterschatten des Gebirges. Der Himalaya hebt sich immer noch um ca. 1 bis 2 cm pro Jahr, außerdem konnten neueste Messungen eine Bewegung nach Nordosten feststellen. Das Klima im Himalaya ist auf der Erde einzigartig. Das Himalayagebirge fungiert allein aufgrund seiner großen Höhe als Klimascheide zwischen dem Subkontinent Indien und der Hochplatte Tibets. Die kalten Nordwinde kommen nicht über das Gebirge. Im Süden davon bleibt es daher für den Breitengrad unverhältnismäßig warm. Umgekehrt gelangen die feucht-schwülen Monsunwinde nicht über den Himalaya nach Norden. Hinter dem Himalayagebirge ist es daher ausgesprochen trocken. Hier sind deshalb auch die bekannten ausgedehnten Wüsten Gobi und Taklamakan zu finden, die zu den trockensten Gebieten der Erde zählen. Die Südseite des Himalayas ist also geografisch und klimatisch......
