Geology 2

Terms - Metamorphic Rocks

metamorphic rocks form from the addition of heat and/or pressure on preexisting rock inside the earth
regional metamorphism caused by forces acting over a large area; associated with mountain building
contact metamorphism occurs at the interface between hot magma and preexisting rock; preexisting rock is changed as a result of being in contact with the hot magma
rock cycle igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks forming from one another
foliation conditions of high pressure and temperature cause a rearrangement or recrystallization of minerals; banding
static pressure pressure that is the same in all directions; increases with depth of burial
sheer stress directed pressure associated with great earth movements; causes change in form and orientation of minerals
