  1. 1. Field/Lab assignment part 1 BY: Jaime Padilla
  2. 2. ROCKS <ul><li>Rocks are a link to the formation of the Earth. Without rocks in this world we would just be plain </li></ul><ul><li>Rocks have been in Earth longer than humans have and will continue being around. </li></ul><ul><li>Certain type of rock weathers away which is the way of life, but somewhere else in the world it forms into rock again. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Metamorphic Rock
  4. 4. Metamorphic Rock <ul><li>I took this picture along the shore of Monterrey Bay. </li></ul><ul><li>Metamorphic rocks are the most amazing rocks to me because of the way they change in form. </li></ul><ul><li>As you can see in the picture of the rock, you can see it compressed. This is because of heat, pressure and other chemically active fluids. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Marble and Granite
  6. 6. Metamorphic Texture <ul><li>Strolling along the downtown of L.A I came upon a store which had many tiles for flooring made of marble and granite. </li></ul><ul><li>These beautiful rocks are used to decorate inside houses and also floors. They are very expensive and they are also a symbol of wealth. </li></ul><ul><li>They come in various colors such as white, red, blue, black, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>When you touch these tiles its really smooth because they are covered in a gloss coat to give it shine. On the contrary, the original granite rock feels rough and at times sharp depending where u got the rock from. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Sedimentary Rock
  8. 8. Sedimentary Rock <ul><li>This picture was tooken at Utah Nevada. My father and I where on the road since he is a truck driver he travels to a lot of places. </li></ul><ul><li>Utah is rich of amazing structures of sedimetary rocks. Everywhere you look you can see this huge mountains of these type of rocks. </li></ul><ul><li>Sedimentary rocks are primarily made up of dirt. Weathering also has a big roll from forming these magnificent rocks. </li></ul><ul><li>You may also find ripples printed on rocks near the ocean shore, sedimentary rock is a perfect way of finding fossils printed into the rock. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Igneouse Rock
  10. 10. Igneous Rock <ul><li>This picture was also taken place at Monterrey Bay. It was exciting seeing this because knowing igneous rock is close by then there must be and underground volcano. </li></ul><ul><li>Igneous rocks begins as a as hot, fluid material from a Volcano. There are 2 different types of igneous rock. </li></ul><ul><li>1 st Extrusive rocks cool quickly over periods of seconds to months and have invisible or very small grains. </li></ul><ul><li>2 nd Intrusive rocks cool more slowly over thousands of years and have small to medium sized grains. </li></ul><ul><li>3 rd Plutonic rocks cool over millions of years, deep underground, and can have grains as large as pebbles. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Field/Lab Assignment ll <ul><li> By: Jaime Padilla </li></ul>
  12. 12. Faults
  13. 13. Faults <ul><li>This picture was taken by Coalinga. </li></ul><ul><li>This Fault is known as a Gouge fault because the two layers are separated by a gray layer that looks very ground up. </li></ul><ul><li>consists of broken up and smashed pieces of rock which forms as the two sides of the fault moving against one another. </li></ul>
  14. 14. Weathering process mechanical/physical
  15. 15. Weathering Process-Mechanical <ul><li>Mechanical weathering takes place when rocks are broken down without any change in the chemical nature of the rocks. </li></ul><ul><li>Exfoliation is the process where the rocks break in sheets along the joints that they have parallel to the earth surface. </li></ul><ul><li>The forces that break rocks down can be numerous, and include such things as pent up energy as the Earth’s crust slowly moves. </li></ul>
  16. 16. Weathering Process-Physical <ul><li>Physical weathering is the class of processes that causes the disintegration of rocks without chemical change. </li></ul><ul><li>The best example I have seen for physical weathering is sedimentary rocks because you can the dirt brush of the rocks. </li></ul><ul><li>This process takes thousands of years, but it’s a process that has been within the Earth longer than humans. </li></ul>
  17. 17. Mass Wasting
  18. 18. Mass wasting <ul><li>This picture was taken in Cambria beach way out in the shore. </li></ul><ul><li>Mass Wasting occurs when the downslope movement of rock and soil pulls down because of gravity. </li></ul><ul><li>As you can also see erosion is also taken place. </li></ul>
  19. 19. sedimentary environments continental, marine, and transitional
  20. 20. Sedimentary Environments <ul><li>Continental is dominated by erosion and deposition associated with streams, glacial, and wind. </li></ul><ul><li>Marine is shallow, deep of continental layers </li></ul><ul><li>Transitional is off the shoreline and consist of tidal flats, lagoons, and deltas. </li></ul>
  21. 21. iphone 3G geological field tool <ul><li>This electronic device is considered as a geological field because it contains GPS. </li></ul><ul><li>It incorporates accelerometers which can be used to measure the tilt of the device. </li></ul><ul><li>Test over geological structures, the relative speed and accuracy of a conventional compass clinometers and the iphone compass hybrid are demonstrated and campared. </li></ul>
  22. 22. iphone 3G geological field tool <ul><li>iphone’s compass is as accurate as the Brunton compass. </li></ul><ul><li>It has different amount of apps so you can use them for different situations </li></ul><ul><li>For example: The ihandy Carpenter app in the premium version serves well as a level and plumb line, making it work for measuring dip angles. </li></ul>
