Metamorphic Rocks How a little bit of heat & pressure transform rocks!
Metamorphic Rocks The term "metamorphic" means "to change form." The mineral composition of the rock must change for the rock to become metamorphic.
1) What is a metamorphic rock? Rocks buried deep in the Earth at high temperatures and pressures form new minerals and textures all without melting.
2) What types of rocks can undergo metamorphism? Any rock (igneous, sedimentary, or metamorphic) can become a metamorphic rock.
To change form Other rocks are exposed to high heat & pressure
3) Where do rocks become metamorphic? Deep within the Earth.
4) What is contact metamorphism? When a rock comes in contact with a heat source, such as a magma pool. The hot magma changes a narrow section of the surrounding rock.
5) What is regional metamorphism? Occurs in areas with higher heat and pressure. Larger areas are affected. Usually occurs as a result of the Earth’s plates colliding or moving.
6) What are the two textures of metamorphic rock? Classified according to its composition and texture. –Foliated –Nonfoliated.
To change form Other rocks are exposed to high heat & pressure Foliated Non-Foliated
7) What are foliated metamorphic rocks? Minerals have been flattened and pushed down into parallel layers. The bands in foliated metamorphic rock look like pages in a book. Slate Gneiss
To change form Other rocks are exposed to high heat & pressure Foliated Non-Foliated Flattened & pushed into parallel layers slate Phyllite gneiss
8) What are non-foliated metamorphic rocks? Do not display layers. Massive structures with no obvious banding. Mineral grains grow and rearrange, but they don’t form layers. Quartzite Marble

Formation of Metamorphic Rocks Rocks that have changed because of changes in temperature and pressure or the presence of hot watery fluids are called metamorphic.
Metamorphic Rocks. Transforming Rocks Rocks change because of changes in temperature and pressure, or the presence of hot, watery fluids. Mineral grains.

Earth Science Notes Metamorphic Rocks. Objective I can… Define Metamorphic Rock. Classify Metamorphic Rock. Explain types of Metamorphism. Describe grades.
What is metamorphic rock? Heat and pressure deep beneath the earth’s surface can change any rock into a metamorphic rock. Geologists classify metamorphic.
Metamorphism. In China… Why animorphs? Metamorphosis Meta= changed Morphosis= shape.
METAMORPHIC ROCK. Metamorphic – Formed from older “parent rock” (either igneous or sedimentary) under intense heat and/or pressure far beneath the earth’s.
Metamorphic Rocks Chapter 3.4. Metamorphic Rocks The word metamorphic means to “change form”. Metamorphic rocks are formed when one type of rock changes.

What is a metamorphic rock? The term "metamorphic" means "to change form." Any rock (igneous, sedimentary, or metamorphic) can become a metamorphic rock.
Metamorphic Rocks. What is A Metamorphic Rock Rocks that have changed due to intense temperature and pressure “Meta” means “change” and morphosis means.
Metamorphic Rock Metamorphism: Changing of one type of rock to another by: Heat Pressure Chemical reactions Metamorphism makes rocks stronger or more.
All Metamorphic Rock starts off as Igneous or Sedimentary Rock Geologists are always interested in what kind of rock a metamorphic rock used to be.
Earth's Surface 3.4 Metamorphic rocks form as existing rocks change.
Meaning to change shape Changes with temperature and pressure, but remains solid Usually.
