What is the rock cycle? all rock type can change into each other. ( sedimentery, igneous, metamorphic)
bowen reaction series why certain types of mineral sare found togethers and others arn't
porphyritic large crystal sin igneous rocks
vesicular extrusive structures in glassy igneous
felsic light
mafic dark
grain size the faster it cools the smaller the grains
intrusions inside the earth
extrusions out sid ethe earth
granite hard igneous rock mostly quartz, mica and feldspar
obsidian hard dark gaslike volcanic rock
basalt dark fine grained volcanicn rock
pumice very light and porus volcanic rock
compacction minerals are squeezed together
cementation glued together by minerals in water
chemical sedimentary rocks precipitation of minerals by water
organic sedimentary rocks rocks formed form the remains of organisms
clastic sedimentary rocks composed of fragments of already existing rocks
angularity smoothness of particles
halite rock salt
coal sedimentary rock
limestone sedimentary rock mostly formed of fragments of marine organsims fossils
shale fine grained clastic sedimentary rock
sandstone clastic sedimentary rock composed of fine grains
conglomerate course garined sedimentary rock made of round fragments
breccia rocks with angular fragments cemented together
contact metamorphism metamorphism that comes in contact with anigneous intrusion
regional metamorphism affecting rocks over a large scale area from heat and pressure
lithosphere outside of the earth consisting of the crust and uppoer mantle
athenosphere upper layer of the matle beneath the litheospher
slate fine grained gray, green or blush metamorphic rocks that can be easliy split apart
schist course grained metamorphic that consits of layers of different layers.
Gneiss metamorphic rock with banded structure
Quartzite extremely compact hard ganular rock
Marble hard crystaline metamorphic form of limestone
divergent boundry two boundries moving away from each other
convergent boundry one plate moves over another
transform boundry slide from the side
subduction zones zones where plates collide
evidence of plate boundries similar fossils on continents far away from each other
