Transcript

  • 1. Sedimentary Rocks 3.3
  • 2. Erosion
    The incorporation and transportation of material by a mobile agent, such as water, wind, or ice.
  • 3. Deposition
    The process by which an agent of erosion loses energy and drops the sediment it is carrying; also the process by which water vapor is changed directly to a solid without passing through the liquid state.
  • 4. Compaction
    Process by which sediments are squeezed together by the weight of overlying materials driving out water.
  • 5. Cementation
    Solidification of sediments by the deposition of dissolved minerals in the tiny spaces between the sedimentary particles.
  • 6. Clastic Sedimentary Rock
    A sedimentary rock made of broken fragments of preexisting rock.
  • 7. Chemical Sedimentary Rock
    Sedimentary rock consisting of material that was precipitated from water by either inorganic or organic means.
  • 8. Key Concept
    Describe the major processes involved in the formation of sedimentary rocks.
    Erosion involves weathering and the removal of rock. When an agent of erosion-water, wind, ice, or gravity-loses energy, it drops the sediments.
  • 9. Key Concept
    What are clastic sedimentary rocks?
    A sedimentary rock made of broken fragments of preexisting rock.
  • 10. Key Concept
    What are chemical sedimentary rocks?
    Sedimentary rock consisting of material that was precipitated from water by either inorganic or organic means.
  • 11. Key Concept
    What features are unique to some sedimentary rocks?
    The many unique features of sedimentary rocks are clues to how, when, and where the rocks formed.
