1. Sedimentary Rocks

2. Weathering

3. Mechanical Weathering

4. Chemical Weathering

5. Erosion & Transport

6. Deposition

7. Lithification

8. Cementation

9. Sedimentary Rocks

10. Rock Identification is based on: Composition What minerals make up the rock? Texture What is the shape, size and orientation of the mineral grains that make up the rock? Major Difference: Crystalline vs. Clastic

11. Types of Sedimentary Rocks

12. Difference: Texture Detrital (Clastic Texture) vs. Chemical (Crystalline Texture)

13. Detrital Rock Composition

14. Detrital Rock Texture Clastic Texture Grain Size Grain Sorting Grain Rounding Sediment Maturity
