TERRANE: A geologic landscape. A terrane is a package of geologic formations produced in one setting and transported by plate tectonics to another where, typically, the transported rocks are added or accreted to the edge of a continent, adding to continental size and producing a mountainous landscape in the process. ON the West coast of North America, such "exotic terranes", or tectonically added rocks, form much of the Sierras, Klamath Mountains, Blue Mountains, North Cascades, Olympic Mountains, and provide the foundation of British Columbia and Alaska. Worldwide, exotic terranes compose the Appalachians, Alps, and many other mountain ranges.
