Restless Earth and Varves

Layers and Layers…..

other planets
Other Planets?
  • Moon, Mars, Venus all too small and cooled off too quickly
    • Volcanoes do exist on Mars
    • No recycling of surface (craters survive)
  • Gas giants different composition (mostly H2) and have very different geological activity
geothermal plants
Geothermal Plants
  • Use Heat inside planet to make Energy!
canadian diamonds
Canadian Diamonds
  • Kimberlite, Peridotite, Garnet
layers and time
Layers and Time
  • Igneous and Metamorphic Rocks
  • Sedimentary Rocks
    • Bottoms of rivers, lakes, oceans
    • Layers correspond to events
    • Limestone layers common in KY
layers in rocks
Layers in Rocks
  • Trees have rings to count for age
  • Sedimentary rocks have layers to count
    • Varves from freeze/thaw show alternating light/dark layers
    • Ice cores used in similar way
green lake varves
Green Lake Varves
  • Dating by counting is relative
  • Banding is dark-light couplet per year
rock cycle
Rock Cycle
  • Total mineral oxide mass not changing in quantity but only in distribution
  • Subduction and Volcanism
  • Igneous, Sedimentary and Metamorphic
  • Devil’s Tower
  • Mount Fuji
igneous rocks
Igneous Rocks
  • Granite, Basalt
  • Mantle extrusion (or intrusion)
igneous rocks10
Igneous Rocks
  • Formation recorded by types of minerals and grain size
sedimentary rocks
Sedimentary Rocks
  • Various types (from Coal to Limestone)
metamorphic rocks
Metamorphic Rocks
  • Gneiss, Marble, others
  • Very high temperature, pressures
  • Recrystallization of constituents
