This includes faulting of rigid rocks and folding of rocks that can be bent.
A deformation that is reversible.
Magma with higher silica content and has higher viscosity has _______ temperature.
When sedimentary rock layers are deposited, younger layers are on top of older deposits.
It is the resistance to flow.
Type of magma that has the highest silica content.
Flowing mud: a fast moving downhill flow of mud and soil loosened by rainfall or melting snow.
Give one of the four factors in Chemical Weathering.
Give one of the four compositions of soil.
An imaginary surface defined by connecting hinges of nested folds.
Stress that has equal pressure exerted on it from all directions because the weight of the overlying rock.
Take place when recently detached rock blocks usually small, move precipitously down a steep cliff or rock face.
A process of Chemical Weathering that deals with water, often containing acid from dissolved carbon dioxide, will dissolve minerals from a rock body leaving cavities in the rock.
Moving sediments or rock sections can break off pieces from a rock surface they strike. The sediments can be moved by wind or water and the large rock sections by gravity.
Most widespread off down slope movements and involves the slow movement of soil and weakly consolidated particles downhill.
TRUE OR FALSE: The sequence of the solum is A, B, C, D, E and F.
Sedimentary rock layers are deposited horizontally. If they are tilted, folded, or broken, it happened later.
A process of Chemical Weathering that deals with minerals that may combine with oxygen to form new minerals that are not as hard.
Downhill movement of earth: the slow movement of soil downhill as a result of water saturation after rainfall or the melting of ice.
Also called as earth slides or soil slips, differ from slumping in that the movement does not exhibit backward rotation, instead there is a sliding or rolling motion.
It deals with the study of any layered (stratified) rock, but primarily with sedimentary rocks.
It occurs when water or carbon dioxide is added to rocks.
The change in shape, size or volume of material rock.
These are processes that break a rock or mineral into smaller pieces without altering its composition.
These are processes at or near Earth’s surface that cause rocks and minerals to break down.
A mixture of molten rock, materials and gases.
A type of trace fossil consisting of fossilized feces which may provide information about the size and diet of the animal that produced it.
Material falls from a vertical or over changing cliff of bluff.
If an igneous intrusion or a fault cuts through existing rocks, the intrusion/fault is YOUNGER than the rock it cuts through.
Masses of rocks sliding down on the bedding slopes of fault faces.
This is the process of removing Earth materials from their original sites through weathering and transport.
These form when buried remains leave a cavity.
When rock has been eroded, so you have a missing section of time in the rock record.
As the liquid solidifies, it loses this heat and transfer it to the surrounding crust.
A soil type that is associated with drier grasslands.
Place of maximum curvature on a fold.
A principle holds that fossil assemblages (groups of fossils) succeed one another through time in a regular and determinable order.
Type of magma that has higher silica content than mafic.
Detachment of soil and broken rock and subsequent down slope movement in a stream or tongue-like form.
Fault wherein top is hanging wall, below is footwall.
Loose sediments transported by gravity are called ______________.
Type of magma that has the hottest and fastest flowing magma.
Rock layers in different places and be correlated or matched up by matching up the rocks and fossils in the layers.
A soil type that is best developed under forest vegetation.
An agent of Mechanical Weathering that deals with the cracking of rock mass by the expansion of water as it freezes in crevices and cracks.
An agent of Mechanical Weathering that deals with the repeated heating and cooling of materials cause rigid substances to crack and separate.
The hot material rises to an area of lower pressure through the process of convection.
This term is used when when sediments are weathered they may be transported downward by gravity.
These are large ice fields that slowly flow downhill over time.
When sediments are weathered they may be transported downward by gravity as a ____________.
When you give the age of a rock or fossil compared to another rock or fossil.
