1 rock forming minerals quartz feldspar amphibole pyroxene mica clay calcite gypsum
2 distinguishing qualities color luster hardness density cleavage crystalline system
3 Formation name – rock mass Type of rock = limestone Rock mass quality = Formation Name –fractures –hydrology –etc “Data Base” - Based on past experience and registering the quality of the rock
4 Rock mass Usages: tunneling mining aggregate in concrete aggregate in asphalt dimension stone foundation rock Good rock “Bra berg” For what???
5 Geological classification Three main rock groups –Igneous rocks (magmatiska) –Sedimentary rocks (sedimentära) –Metamorphic rocks (metamorfa)
6 Igneous rocks (magmatiska)
7 Sedimentary rocks (sedimentära)
8 Metamorphic rocks (metamorfa)
9 Igneous Rocks = hard rocks extrusive – lava intrusive or plutonic (50 km or more) serpentinites – altered igneous rocks
10 Igneous Rocks extrusive – lava
11 Igneous Rocks intrusive or plutonic (50 km or more) joints common, sheet joints high in-situ stress
12 Igneous Rocks highly susceptible to weathering
13 Igneous Rocks serpentinites – altered igneous rocks broken and crushed seams of serpentine-rich clay shear easily
14 common igneous rocks intrusive –granite –diorite –gabbros –diabase or dolerite –pegmatite extrusive –basalt –andesite –rhyolite
15 Sedimentary rocks = Soft rocks 1.clastic 2.chemical 3.biochemical
16 Sedimentary rocks 1.clastic 2.chemical 3.biochemical composed of pieces of pre existing rocks and minerals
17 Sedimentary rocks 1.clastic 2.chemical 3.biochemical precipitate of a mass, such as silica or calcium carbonate wandering of a substance in the rocks
18 Sedimentary rocks 1.clastic 2.chemical 3.biochemical composed of fragments of plants and animals
19 characteristics of sedimentary rocks bedding and strata –laterally continuous –uniformly thick –originally horizontal
20 characteristics of sedimentary rocks bedding and strata –laterally continuous –uniformly thick –originally horizontal
23 Diagenesis sediment transformed to a sedimentary rocks: compaction cementation low temperatures
24 common sedimentary rocks claystone mudstone siltstone sandstone conglomerate limestone
25 “Rock” according to an engineer is irreversibly cemented and hard – but several sedimentary rocks can loose all resemblance of a rock when soaked in water – these act as engineering“soils ”
26 Metamorphic Rocks – “changed rocks” metamorphism – minerals and structures of rocks are transformed
27 metamorphic textures – highly directional foliation schistosity recrystallized –isotropic –anisotropic
28 metamorphic textures – highly directional foliation schistosity recrystallized –isotropic –anisotropic
29 metamorphic textures – highly directional foliation schistosity recrystallized –isotropic –anisotropic
30 Common metamorphic rock types: slate schist gneiss marble quartzite
31 Common metamorphic rock types: slate schist gneiss marble quartzite
32 Common metamorphic rock types: slate schist gneiss marble quartzite
33 Common metamorphic rock types: slate schist gneiss marble quartzite
35 Common metamorphic rock types: slate schist gneiss marble quartzite
Chapter 4 - Rocks What can be learned by studying rocks… We can learn mo better about earth. So what is a rock??? Its a mixture of 1 or more minerals.
Rock Identification Rock Lab. Identification of all three rock groups is based on TEXTURE and COMPOSITION Identification of all three rock groups is based.
Unit 3 Rocks, Soil, Erosion and Mass Movements Including the Geological History of North Carolina!
Chapter 3 Rocks. Rock – any solid mass of mineral or mineral-like matter that occurs naturally as part of our planet –Usually solid mixtures of minerals.
Elements in Earth Science Each element is made of atoms that are the same Each atom is made of protons, neutrons, and electrons.
Rocks Chapter 4. What is a rock? Rock Mixture of minerals, rock fragments, volcanic glass, organic material, or other natural materials.
Rocks and Minerals. Types of Rocks Igneous Rock Sedimentary Rock Metamorphic Rock.
Rocks S6E5 Students will investigate the scientific view of how Earths surface is formed. b.Investigate the composition of rocks in terms of minerals.
I. Minerals and Rocks A. Early Earth 1. Early surface was a violent place 2. Full of molten lava and no atmosphere; it took time for Earth to cool and.
What is a Rock? Naturally-occurring mixtures of minerals, mineraloids (no crystals), or organic matter. Naturally-occurring mixtures of minerals, mineraloids.

Geology Part II The Rock Cycle Rocks: –Igneous –Sedimentary –Metamorphic Geologic Profiles Geologic Time –Relative –Absolute –Radioactive Dating.
The Rock Cycle One kind of rock turns into another which turns into another which turns into another which turns into another.
ROCK IDENTIFICATION Liz LaRosa
Introduction Stone is a natural material of construction. Building stones arte obtained from a quarry be distingration of rocks. Man has been using stones.
METAMORPHIC ROCKS. CLASSIFICATION OF ROCKS Classification of Rocks zRocks are aggregates of minerals. Geologists divide rocks into three groups: igneous,
SEDIMENTARY ROCKS. Classification of Rocks 4 Rocks are aggregates of minerals. Geologists divide rocks into three groups: igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary.

Rocks What is a rock’s favorite cereal? Coco pebbles! What’s a rock’s favorite golf course? Pebble Beach!
Rocks, Minerals and The Rock Cycle The test is to recognize the mistake, admit it and correct it. To have tried to do something and failed is vastly better.

The Rock Cycle Relationships among the major rock groups.
Rocks and the Rock Cycle. Objective Students will be able to explain how the 3 major types of rocks form Standard 3c – explain the properties of rocks.
Unit 3 Minerals and Rocks The Big Idea: Minerals and rocks are basic building blocks of Earth and can change over time from one type of mineral or rock.
©2014-C26 The rules for B & C are the same What to expect There are 20 stations around the perimeter of the room. The students will rotate from station.
What are the characteristics of rocks? The types of rocks are : Igneous -Igneous rocks are formed from melted rock that has cooled and solidified rocks.
