Summary: foliation in metamorphic rock due to differental stress(compressive stress or shearing) slate, phylite,schist,and genesis are folaited rock that indiacte increasing grade of regional metamorphism
Contact met-produced during metamorphic usually without significant differential stress but with high temp
reg met-involves heat, confining pressure, and different stressed, has created mot of the metamorphic crust
hydrothermal veins- hot water precipates crystallizes into minerls.
Which is not regarded as a low grade metamorphic rock?
greenschist, phylitte, slate,gnesis
shearing is a type of
metamorphic rocks witha planar texture
metamorphic rocks are classifed prmarily on
which is not a foliated metamorphic rock?
limestone recrystallizes during metamorphism into
quartz sandstone is changed during metamorphism into
sequence of rocks that are fomed when shale undergoes prograde metamorphism
ore bodies at divergent plate boundaries can be created via
a schist that developed in a high pressure low tem enviormned is likely formed
in the lower part of the con crust
a met rock has undergone partical melting to produce a mixed igneous metamorphic rock is
