West Virginia's geologic history is somewhat complex, partly as a result of the intervention of several mountain-building processes, including periods of folding and uplifting, and partly because West Virginia's two largest geologic provinces are quite different: much of the western state is located in a highly eroded plateau; whereas folding accounts for much of the mountain-building process in the east mountain and eastern pandhandle.
