    Metamorphic rocks graph worksheet Metamorphic rocks graph worksheet Document Transcript

    • Metamorphic Rocks: Changes from Heat and Pressure<br />Directions: Using the diagram below, your knowledge of earth science and Metamorphic Rock chart on page 7 of your ESRT, answer the following questions about metamorphic rocks.<br />What is the relationship between rock temperature and depth beneath the surface? <br />_________________________________________________________________<br />Which metamorphic rock show forms at the highest temperature? ______________<br />At what temperature does phyllite form? __________________________________<br />How many kilometers beneath the Earth’s surface doe’s gneiss occur? _____________<br />How far below the Earth’s surface would you find a rock at a temperature of 500oC?<br />_________________________________________________________________<br />Suppose you knew that a certain metamorphic rock begins to from at 350oC. How many kilometers below the surface might this rock temperature occur? _______________<br />How far beneath the surface does shale metamorphose into slate? _______________<br />Metamorphism is described as a process by which metamorphic rocks may gradually change into granite (an igneous rock). At what temperature does metamorphism begin? _____________ At what depth does this temperature occur? _________________<br />At what temperature does gneiss have to be heated to melt? ___________________<br />At what depth does the metamorphic zone begin? ___________________________<br />What is the sequence of rocks created as shale is metamorphosed into gneiss? <br />_______________________________________________________________________<br />
