Geology- Interlude C
Terms in this set (9)
As they pass through the rock cycle, atoms
A. stay within the same mineral.
B. move through the rock cycle in the same manner
C. do not move through the rock cycle at the same rate.
D. that were adjacent to each other remain near each other
do not move through the rock cycle at the same rate.
Identify the FALSE statement.
A. Most atoms that are found in continental crust never return to the mantle because continental crust is too buoyant to subduct.
B. New material cannot enter the rock cycle; only the material that is in the cycle now can be recycled.
C. Ocean crust does not erode and generally does not follow the path to sedimentary rock in the rock cycle
D. Rocks in the Appalachian Mountains have passed through many stages of the rock cycle throughout the last billion years.
New material cannot enter the rock cycle; only the material that is in the cycle now can be recycled.
Identify the FALSE statement. A rock in any given class doesn't last forever because
A. Earth materials can change from one type to another over time.
B. Earth is an actively changing, dynamic system.
C. all rocks in the crust will, at some point, be subducted and melted to create igneous rock.
D. uplift, weathering, burial, and heating/melting can transform one rock type into another
all rocks in the crust will, at some point, be subducted and melted to create igneous rock.
Identify the FALSE statement. The rock cycle does not exist on the Moon because
A. the Moon has no atmosphere
B. plate tectonics is not active on the Moon
C. there are no oceans on the Moon
D. the Moon is much younger than the Earth and hasn't had enough time to weather/erode
the Moon is much younger than the Earth and hasn't had enough time to weather/erode
Identify the FALSE statement. The rock cycle indicates that
A. sedimentary rock cannot form from other sedimentary rocks because the pathway is always from one rock type to a different rock type.
B. in order to make a metamorphic rock, burial and/or heating are needed.
C. a granite that was eroded, transported, and then deposited would eventually become a sedimentary rock.
D. input of new melt into the crust enters the rock cycle as an igneous rock.
sedimentary rock cannot form from other sedimentary rocks because the pathway is always from one rock type to a different rock type.
Shale, a sedimentary rock, can be subjected to high heat and pressure through
A. volcanism during mid-ocean ridge spreading
B. partial melting during hot-spot activity.
C. exhumation during rifting
D. burial during continental collision
burial during continental collision
The various geologic settings in which rocks can melt, metamorphose, or become sediment are ultimately generated by
B. plate tectonics
C. heat from the Sun
D. life at the Earth's surface
Which of the following describes an igneous → metamorphic → sedimentary path through the rock cycle?
A. A granite becomes buried and heated to form gneiss, and is then uplifted and eroded to make sand.
B. A shale is uplifted and eroded to make clay, deposited into a basin, then buried and heated
C. A schist is buried and heated to form gneiss, then uplifted and eroded to make sand.
D. A sandstone is melted then cooled, then uplifted and eroded to make sand
A granite becomes buried and heated to form gneiss, and is then uplifted and eroded to make sand.
Which of the following sequences explains the transition path of a rock that experienced melting then cooling, burial to deep depths during mountain building, and then uplift and weathering?
A. igneous → igneous → sedimentary
B. igneous → metamorphic → sedimentary
C. metamorphic → igneous → metamorphic
D. sedimentary → igneous → metamorphic
igneous → metamorphic → sedimentary
