The steps of the rock cycle
Weathering and erosion
Erosion- is when wind ,water or ice transports soil and sediment from one location to another.
Weathering-is when wind water and ice break down rock.
Here is a image of weathering and erosion.
Transport and deposition
Deposition -is the process of being laid down or dropped.
Here is a picture of transport and deposition
is the process of a sedimentary rock would be
Here is a picture of sedimentation
Compaction and Cementation
Occurs when the sediments bind together or for compaction they would compress together in the process of forming a sedimentary rock
Here is a picture of compaction and cementation
Sedimentary rock -rock formed from sediments compacting and sedimenting together .This type of rock has layers.
Here is a picture of a sedimentary rock
Burial high temperature and Pressure
Metamorphic rock-extreme heat and pressure causing one rock type to become another.
Here is a picture of a metamorphic rock
Melting occurs when a rock is under high heat and pressure causing it to melt and turn into a different rock when it cools.
Magma from molten crust and mantle
This is what forms the intrusive extrusive igneous rocks because depending on how far the magma is from earths surface or crust and mantle or surface determines whether it is a extrusive igneous or a intrusive.
Here is a image of magma molten crust and mantle
This is what forms igneous rocks because when the volcano erupts the magma cools at earths surface causing igneous rocks to form.
Here is a image of magma what igneous rocks are formed from
Intrusive igneous rock
Intrusive igneous rock -is a igneous rock that was formed by magma below the surface so it is below the surface.
Here are two images showing this one is how they are formed another shows you where the rock is formed.
Extrusive igneous rock
extrusive igneous rock-is a igneous rock that was formed by lava at or near the earths surface so it is either near or at earths surface.
