Transcript

  • 1. The Rock Cycle Thinking about relationships among the major rock groups
  • 2. Major Rock Groups • Igneous – Formed from a melt (molten rock) – Plutonic (intrusive):slow cooling and crystallization – Volcanic (extrusion): quick cooling at the surface • Sedimentary – Formed at the Earth’s surface – Clastic (Mineral Fragments or grains, clays) – Chemical (crystalline chemical/biochemical precipitates) • Metamorphic – Changed by pressure, temperature and fluids. 2

  • 14. In Conclusion… • The rock cycle demonstrates the relationships among the three major rock groups • It is powered by the interior heat of the Earth • As well as earth’s momentum and… • The energy from the sun • It involves processes on the Earth’s surface as well as the Earth’s interior • It connects the “hydrologic cycle” with the “tectonic cycle”.
