Weathering and Erosion
This occurs through the action of water and wind.
Transport and Deposition
Sediments created by weathering are transported and deposited by water and wind.
Sediments becoming a layer.
Compaction and Cementation
The sediments compress together and become stuck together
rock formed by sediments compacting and cementing together
Burial, High Temperatures and Pressure
The layers are close to the heat of the molten and magma. This heat changes the rock form of sedimentary or igneous rock into metamorphic rock.
Type of rock formed from another type of rock being exposed to extreme heat and pressure changing it into another rock
The hot magma and mantel melt the metamorphic rocks
Magma from molten crust and mantle
The hot mantle interacts with the lithosphere causing magma chambers to form
-melts metamorphic and sedimentary rocks forming into igneous rock.
2 things can happen next...
rock formed near or at the earth's surface
Rock formed from the cooling and solidification of the magma beneath the surface
