23 CLICK HERE TO ANSWER What does the law of conservation of matter state? It states that mass is neither created nor destroyed in an ordinary chemical reaction. MAIN MENU

24 CLICK HERE TO ANSWER What are plant acids? MAIN MENU Acids that are made by plants.

25 CLICK HERE TO ANSWER the direction of stratification and what information it gives us: stratification is the deposition of layers. the layers where once horizontal but because of the pressure of moving tectonic plates, these horizontal layers are turned over 90 degrees upward to make a vertical. What is stratification? MAIN MENU

26 CLICK HERE TO ANSWER What type of rock is Available in the Huasteca canyon? MAIN MENU Limestone. Did you know? contains at least 50% calcium carbonate in the form of calcite by weight. All lime stones contain at least a few percent other materials. These can be small particles of quartz, feldspar, clay minerals, pyrite, siderite and other minerals. It can also contain large nodules of chert, pyrite or siderite. The calcium carbonate content of limestone gives it a property that is often used in rock identification - it effervesces in contact with a cold solution of 5% hydrochloric acid.

56 CLICK HERE TO ANSWER Signs of weathering and erosion: the Huasteca Canyon there are many signs of weathering and erosion. Many of them are caused by acid rain, rivers and hurricane Alex. Weathering is when rocks are broken down into sediments. Erosion is when those sediments are taken away to another place. Some signs of weathering are some rocks that have holes because of the acid rain which become more easy to brake and eventually brake forming sediments. Some signs of erosion are the rivers, they transport sediments to new places. The type rock found in the canyon: In the Huasteca canyon there are many types of rocks, but there is one specific rock were you can find it any were, and its limestone. It was belived that the Huasteca canyon was once under the ocean and that’s why almost all the canyon is made out of limestone. There are also conglomerate rocks which are not as easy to find. There are also some mines in which they mine marmol. The effects of acid rain on limestone: In the rainy seasons in the Huasteca Canyon there is a thing called acid rain. Acid rain is rain that becomes acid because of all the pollution in the air caused many reasons like cars, factories, people, trucks, constructions, tire burning, etc. When acid rain meets limestone it chemically reacts making holes in the limestone rock more softer and easier to brake. Next facts!

57 CLICK HERE TO ANSWER Next fact! Soil Type: The soil in the Husteca canyon is mostly made up of all the layers except the topsoil because it has been washed away by the hurricane. Also the soil doesn’t have a lot of humus because all the humus in the topsoil got washed away. Also humus takes a lot of time to form especially in a semi-arid (dry) environment the canyon has. Last the soil is transported soil because the hurricane moved all the soil from its parent rock The conditions under which the rock was formed: The Huasteca canyon was formed underwater because millions of years ago the whole Huasteca canyon was a sea. The origin of the rock: layers of decayed animals, shells, bones, sea plants, and rock sediments form the Hasteca canyon. At first the layers where horizontal but the tectonic plates underneath it pushed on the rock creating the vertical layers we see today.

58 definition of stratification, the direction of stratification and what information it gives us: stratification is the deposition of layers. the layers where once horizontal but because of the pressure of moving tectonic plates, these horizontal layers are turned over 90 degrees upward to make a vertical. It gives us information of how it formed and how it was the bottom of a sea. the chemical composition of limestone is... contains at least 50% calcium carbonate in the form of calcite by weight. All lime stones contain at least a few percent other materials. These can be small particles of quartz, feldspar, clay minerals, pyrite, siderite and other minerals. It can also contain large nodules of chert, pyrite or siderite. The calcium carbonate content of limestone gives it a property that is often used in rock identification - it effervesces in contact with a cold solution of 5% hydrochloric acid.
