What is geology?

Goal: Tell the types of things that might be studies in geology.

AB partners: Tell three things you think might be discussed in geology.


All of these are topics in geology except…..


Types of Rock

Goal: Name the three categories of rock and tell how they form.

AB partners: tell what you know about

igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rock.


Igneous Rock


Sedimentary Rock


Metamorphic Rock


Types of rocks


Weathering vs Erosion


Chemical Weathering


Erosion


Weathering or erosion?


Large Scale Erosion: Landslides


Sedimentary Rock Formation Examples


travertine


Dunn River FallsChemical Sedimentary Rock Jamaica


Yellowstone National Park


Travertine Hot Springs Turkey


Shale - sedimentary

Igneous


Igneous Lake


What IS your metabolism?

Your metabolism changes _______ to _________.


Metamorphic Rock

  • Meaning to change shape

  • Changes with temperature

  • and pressure, but remains

  • solid

  • Usually takes place deep in

  • the Earth

Schist

Metamorphic Rocks

  • Regional Metamorphism – pressure builds up in rocks that is deep within the Earth

  • Large pieces of the Earth’s crust collide and the rock is deformed and chemically changed by heat and pressure

Metamorphic Rocks

Hornfels is a fine-grained non-foliated metamorphic rock produced by contact metamorphism

Contact Metamorphism – heated by nearby magma

Increased temperature changes the composition of the rock, minerals are changed into new minerals

Metamorphic Rock

Marble is a non-foliated metamorphic rock that is produced from the metamorphism of limestone.

It is composed primarily of calcium carbonate.

Non-Foliated – mineral grains are not arranged in plains or bands
