Igneous rocks that cool quickly on Earth's surface are ? extrusive
The processes involved in the rock cycle include all of the following EXCEPT . a) condensation
A is a sedimentary rock made of clasts of minerals of rock fragments. clasts rocks
Sedimentary rocks form because of all of the following except ? b) crystals solidifying from magma
A is a broken piece of fragment of rock clasts
the rock cycle indicates that each type of rock can ? all of the above
sediments in sedimentary rocks are often ? a) held together with natural cements
which statements is correct regarding metamorphic rock formation? d) the deeper into Earth's crust, the higher the pressure
molten rock below the Earth's surface magma
molten rock that has erupted onto Earth's surface lava
are known as primary rocks igneous rocks
when volcanic material erupts, cools, and crystalizes on Earth's surface extrusive
when magma cools under ground rocks are formed intrusive
are formed when sediments are deposited sedimentary rocks
breaking up of rocks into smaller pieces weathering
movement or transportation of pieces of rocks erosion
compression rocks together compaction
dissolved minerals crystalize and cement rocks together cemitation
broken pieced or fragments are called clasts
kilobars= kb
any process that affects the structure of composition of a rock in a solid state as a result of changes in temperature, pressure, or the addition of chemical fluids metamorphism
rock that changes during metamorphism parent rock
magma comes in contact with existing rock, its thermal energy and gases interact with the surrounding rock contact metamorphism
formation of metamorphic rock bodies that are 100's of square kilometers in size regional metamorphism
have mineral grains with a random, interlocking texture/no obvious alignment of the mineral crystals non-foliated
contain parallel layers of flat and long gated minerals foliated
the series of processes that change one type of rock into another type of rock rock cycle
a structurally high area in the crust, produced by movements that raise the rocks, as in a broad dome or arch uplift
someone who studies rocks geologist
slow cooling form crystals large
fast cooling form crystals small
