Caption: Western North America. Mosaic of satellite images showing the western half of the continent of North America. Most of the western region is at a high elevation, a result of the destructive tectonic plate boundary along the whole Pacific Coast. The mountains include the Sierra Madre of Mexico (bottom), the Basin Region of Nevada (left) and the Rocky mountains of the USA and Canada (centre to top left). Tectonic forces were also responsible for Mexico's Baja California peninsula (lower left) and the San Joaquin Valley (green, centre left). The data for this image were gathered by NOAA weather satellites.
