SEDIMENTS & SEDIMENTARY ROCKS
Sedimentary Rocks. Sedimentary Rock Rock that is formed from parts of other rocks that are compressed and cemented together or as dissolved minerals.
Sedimentary Rocks Weathering Erosion Transport Deposition Sediments Lithification.
Sedimentary rocks. Conglomerate- clastic Made of rock pieces and pebbles that are rounded in shape.

Every stone a story, like a rosary. ---Joan Osborne
Sedimentary Rocks. Sedimentary Rocks are #1 Earth’s crust was made of IGNEOUS rocks But 75% of the rocks on the Earth’s crust are SEDIMENTARY! Why?
SEDIMENTARY ROCK. BIG Idea Most rocks are formed from pre-existing rocks through external and internal geologic processes.
Chapter 3.3. The word sedimentary comes from the latin word sedimentum, which means “settling”. Sedimentary rocks form when sediments settle out and.
CHAPTER 6-3 SEDIMENTARY ROCKS. What is sediment? Loose fragments of rock, minerals, and organic material that result from natural processes (including.
CHAPTER 6.3 SEDIMENTARY ROCKS. 95% OF EARTHS CRUST IS IGNEOUS ROCK, AND 4-5% IS SEDIMENTARY AND METAMORPHIC ROCK SEDIMENTS – ANY SUBSTANCE THAT SETTLES.
Sedimentary Rocks. l l Products of mechanical and chemical weathering l l Account for about 5% of Earth’s crust l l Contain evidence of past environments.
SEDIMENTARY ROCKS What are sediments? They are “loose” rock particles.

Sedimentary Rocks Chapter 6. What Are Sediments? Loose particulate material In order of decreasing size.
Chapter 6 Sediments and Sedimentary Rocks
AIM: How are Sedimentary Rocks Formed? Do Now: Take out your ESRT and turn to page 7. Look at the chart called Scheme for Sedimentary Rock identification.
Earth Systems 3209 – Unit 3. The Rock Cycle Why study sedimentary rocks? Economic use, fossils and earths history. 5% of Earths crust is sedimentary.
Sediments and Sedimentary Rocks. Significance for Climate and CCS Form at the surface, so directly influnced by Earth’s climate, provide the climate record.
Sedimentary Rocks Sedimentary rocks are those that are formed from the collection of sediments from pre- existing rocks or through organic materials.
Aim: How can we explain sedimentary rock formation?
