Sedimentary Rocks

Sedimentary a rock that has formed from sediment deposited by water or air
Compaction Particles are smashed together with such great force that they stick together
Cementation Water moving between particles carries dissolved minerals that can act as cement, when minerals slowly precipitate out of water and fill the spaces between the particles
Clastic rocks that are composed of other older broken rocks
Chemical/ Crystalline rocks formed by precipitation of minerals from water
Bioclastic Sedimentary Sedimentary rocks that contain the remains of organisms ex: Limestone, Coal
Grain Size the size of the sediment particles
Precipitate rocks that are formed when water has more dissolved minerals than it can hold, minerals then settle out of the water
Evaporates rocks that form due to water evaporating and leaving minerals behind
Environment of Formation the area, temperature and other factors that were present when a rock was created
