The Rock Cycle Thinking about relationships among the major rock groups Slide 2 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 Earths surface Clastic (Mineral Fragments or grains, clays) Chemical (crystalline chemical/biochemical precipitates) Metamorphic Changed by pressure, temperature and fluids. Slide 3 Fig. 2.9 MAGMA Slide 4 4 Crystallization IGNEOUS Slide 5 5 MAGMA IGNEOUS Plutonic Crystallization Slide 6 6 MAGMA Volcanic IGNEOUS Plutonic Crystallization Slide 7 7 MAGMA Volcanic IGNEOUS Plutonic Uplift Crystallization Weathering Slide 8 8 MAGMA Volcanic IGNEOUS Plutonic SEDIMENT Uplift Crystallization Weathering SEDIMENT Slide 9 9 MAGMA Volcanic IGNEOUS Plutonic SEDIMENT SEDIMENTARY Uplift Crystallization Weathering Erosion Transport Deposition Slide 10 10 MAGMA Volcanic IGNEOUS Plutonic SEDIMENT SEDIMENTARY Uplift Crystallization Weathering Erosion Transport Deposition Slide 11 11 MAGMA Volcanic IGNEOUS Plutonic SEDIMENT SEDIMENTARY METAMORPHIC Uplift Burial Increased P&T Crystallization Weathering Erosion Transport Deposition Slide 12 12 MAGMA Volcanic IGNEOUS Plutonic SEDIMENT SEDIMENTARY METAMORPHIC Uplift Burial Increased P&T Melting Crystallization Weathering Erosion Transport Deposition Can you see any shortcuts? Slide 13 13 MAGMA Volcanic IGNEOUS Plutonic SEDIMENT SEDIMENTARY METAMORPHIC Uplift Burial Increased P&T Melting Crystallization Weathering Erosion Transport Deposition Slide 14 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 earths momentum and The energy from the sun It involves processes on the Earths surface as well as the Earths interior It connects the hydrologic cycle with the tectonic cycle. In Conclusion Slide 15 Slide 16 16 MAGMA Volcanic IGNEOUS Plutonic SEDIMENT SEDIMENTARY METAMORPHIC Uplift Burial Increased P&T Melting Crystallization Weathering Erosion Transport Deposition Slide 17 17
