orogen -> ορογενετικό σύστημα

Orogen (or "orogenic system")
In general, there are two main types of orogens at convergent plate margins: (1) accretionary orogens, which were produced by subduction of one oceanic plate beneath one continental plate to result in either continental arc magmatism or the accretion of island arc terranes to continental margins; (2) collisional orogens, which were produced by collision between two continental blocks, with subduction of one continental block beneath the other continental block.

(geology) The rock deformed by an orogeny
A mountain pass.

A belt of the earth's crust involved in the formation of mountains.
