Metamorphic Rock

Metamorphic Rock

Metamorphic Rock. Rock Cycle. Metamorphism means "changed form". Agents of Metamorphism Changes occur because of: Heat Pressure Chemical fluids *Rocks adjust to become more stable under new, higher temperatures and pressures. HEAT

Metamorphic Rocks

Metamorphic Rocks

Metamorphic Rocks. Metamorphic rocks have been changed from a pre-existing rock. Caused by extreme heat and/or pressure. Regional Metamorphism. Caused by extreme pressure and heat. Happens over wide “regions”. Contact Metamorphism. Caused by contact with extreme heat.

Metamorphic Rocks

Metamorphic Rocks. The Rock Cycle. If you bury a rock deep enough, it will melt (IGNEOUS) Not so deep, a rock will become lithified (SEDIMENTARY) At conditions (Pressures and Temperatures) just right, metamorphism occurs. http://voyagerstories.files.wordpress.com/2009/02/rock-cycle.jpg.

Rocks

Rocks

Rocks. Sedimentary, Igneous, and Metamorphic. 3 Types of Sedimentary Rocks. Clastic Chemical Organic. Clastic Sedimentary Rock. Sediments form when rocks are weathered and eroded Sediments are moved by wind, glaciers and water Most clastic sediments are deposited in the ocean.

Metamorphic Rocks

Metamorphic Rocks

Metamorphic Rocks. Change is Good. Metamorphic Rocks. Formed from intense heat and pressure!. Sources of Heat. 300-1400 degree Celsius temperatures are needed for Metamorphism. Sources of heat include: Magma or lava Friction from faulting. Sources of Pressure.

Sedimentary and Metamorphic Rocks

Sedimentary and Metamorphic Rocks

Sedimentary and Metamorphic Rocks. Sedimentary Rocks. Made from sediment / organic matter Rock goes through weathering and erosion, and is broken down into tiny fragments, some of which may be chemically altered Sediment Sediment is compacted and cemented

METAMORPHIC ROCKS

METAMORPHIC ROCKS

METAMORPHIC ROCKS. What is a metamorphic rock? Metamorphic rocks form after another rock is subjected to extreme heat and/or pressure and that changes its physical characteristics. Metamorphic Rocks Appear Similar to Their Parent Rocks

Metamorphic Rocks

Metamorphic Rocks

A Rock Group in action…. Metamorphic Rocks. Classified according to the arrangement of the grains that make up the rocks & the minerals in them. Metamorphic rocks are nicknamed “Changing Rocks”. Why?. They are made from other rocks…. How do Metamorphic rocks form?.

Short circuits

Short circuits

Short circuits. Metamorphic Rocks. form beneath the Earth’s surface heat, pressure and/or fluids on pre-existing rocks exhumed by uplift and erosion Don’t Create / change metamorphism can be: regional fault-related (beside seismic zones) contact (adjacent to igneous rocks).

Agents of Metamorphism

Agents of Metamorphism

Three Metamorphic agents cause rocks to change;. During metamorphism, rocks are often subjected to all three agents at the same time. Agents of Metamorphism. 1) increased heat. 2) increased pressure. 3) chemically active fluids. Reference: Pages 193 - 196.
