DEFINITION OF HINTERLAND

The interior or region bordering the internal

zone of a mountain belt is sometimes referred to as the hinterland.

It contrasts to the foreland, the area in front of the

mountain belt and toward which most folds are overturned

and thrusts have moved, and the backland, the area behind

an orogenic belt. Hinterlands tend to have exposed highgrade

metamorphic rocks, show strong deformation, and

may be highly elevated if the mountain belt is young.
