30 Section 6.1 Formation of Sedimentary Rocks Sequence the Formation of Sedimentary Rocks. Explain the formation and classification of clastic sediments. Describe features of Sedimentary Rocks.
31 Earth s Surface Much of Earth s surface is covered not by solid rock, but by sediments.
32 Sediments Pieces of solid material deposited on Earth s surface - sediment
33 Physical Weathering During physical weathering, minerals remain chemically unchanged.
34 Landslides, moving water, wind, and glaciers cause erosion of surface materials. Erosion
35 Effects of Gravity Eroded materials are almost always carried downhill.
36 Deposition Process of sediments being laid down on the ground or sinking to the bottom of water - deposition
37 Cementation During sedimentary rock formation, cementation occurs after weathering.
38 Lithification Physical and chemical processes that compact and transform sediments into sedimentary rocks - lithification
39 Bedding The primary feature of sedimentary rocks is horizontal layering called bedding.
40 Graded Bedding Graded bedding has the heaviest and coarsest material on the bottom.
41 Cross Bedding Inclined sediment layers that migrate forward across a horizontal surface - cross bedding Cross-bedded sandstone (fossilized sand dunes) near Kanab, Utah.
42 Quiz Section 6.1 Formation of Sedimentary Rocks 1.Much of Earth s surface is covered not by solid rock, but by. 2.Landslides,, wind, and glaciers cause erosion of surface materials. 3.Eroded materials are almost always carried. 4.During weathering, minerals remain chemically unchanged. 5.(Q1) being laid down on the ground or sinking to the bottom of water is.

46 Weathering Weathering of rock produces worn surfaces and rounded corners that are characteristic of some clastic sediment particles.
47 Breccias are coarsegrained sedimentary rock with angular fragments. Breccia
48 Saturation When the concentration of minerals dissolved in water reaches saturation, crystals precipitate out of solution.
49 Evaporite Layers of chemical sedimentary rocks that form from precipitated minerals - evaporite
50 Limestone Organic sedimentary rock - limestone
51 Sedimentary Rocks Sedimentary rocks form from rock and mineral fragments, and metamorphic rocks form from existing rock.
52 Porosity The percentage of open spaces between mineral grains in clastic rocks is its porosity.
53 Benefit of porosity The porosity of sandstone allows it to hold oil, gas, and water.
54 Conglomerate vs. Evaporite Conglomerates form from deposits of loose sediments on Earth s surface. Both are sedimentary rocks. Evaporites form when water evaporates from mineral-rich solutions, causing the minerals to precipitate out of the solutions.

58 Contact Metamorphism Contact metamorphism results when rocks come in contact with molten rocks such as those in an igneous intrusion.
59 Hydrothermal Metamorphism Results when hydrothermal fluid reacts with rock to change its mineralogy, texture, and chemistry.
60 Regional Metamorphism High temperature and pressure which affect a large region of the Earth s crust (type most commonly seen in NE)
61 Foliated Composed of minerals with crystals that have their long axes perpendicular to pressure - foliated metamorphic rock
62 foliated, non-foliated Both are textures of metamorphic rocks classified by mineral grain alignment. Foliated rocks have distinct banding or layers that formed perpendicular to pressure. Non-foliated rocks are crystals with blocky shapes and do not have banding.
63 Marble The metamorphism of limestone results in the formation of marble.
64 Rock Cycle The continuous changing and reforming of rocks is called the rock cycle.
65 (copy the above illustration and information ) In the Rock Cycle any rock type may be transformed into any other rock type.
66 The Rock Cycle is the sum total of all the geologic processes of change occurring within and upon the Earth's lithosphere. In the rock cycle, rocks are formed, weathered, eroded, deposited, reformed and uplifted. Source:
