The magnitude of the stress and heat involved led to the buckling of the continental shelf, pushing mountains up in an event referred to as Grenville Orogeny. The collision caused the uplifting of mountains and the metamorphism of rocks. This process created a supercontinent. Following long processes of erosion and relaxation of land, at the time when weathering wore down Grenville mountains, the supercontinents started to break apart. This resulted in the formation of a new ocean to the East (Iapetus Ocean) and some other seas (for example, Octoraro Sea). The act of pulling apart also led to the formations of microcontinents which were large islands off the coast. Pulling apart also caused some volcanic eruptions forming volcanic mountains, the pulling apart of the crust also led to the formation of valleys and basins. After millions of years, Pangea (Supercontinent) bro
