26 These are fragments of Pacific Ocean floor, occasionally continental but more commonly of oceanic origin, that moved east across the ancient Pacific to collide with the North American craton (continental core). Collision led to accretion, and often to uplift, as the terrane continued to press against the craton. Some parts of the western United States are formed from ancient Pacific islands now elevated thousands of meters above their original position. These terranes are termed “exotic” because they are now found in places far from where they originated.

Finally, when we think of the places in the ocean basins where subsidence occurs, we should acknowledge the existence of localized subsidence. This might be because of areally restricted crustal loading, as in the case of Rarotonga discussed earlier, or because of localized landsliding resulting from oversteepened slopes. 57 Parts of the continental rim of the Pacific are also subject to subsidence, for some of the same reasons that it occurs in the ocean basin. One exception is when subsidence occurs around the mouths of large rivers where the huge bodies of sediment they deposit around their mouths weigh down the underlying crust in much the same way as large islands like Rarotonga can do.
