(1) topographic maps (2) geologic time scales (3) tectonic plate maps (4) planetary wind maps Which two kinds of adjoining bedrock would most likely have a zone of contact metamorphism between them?
What is the approximate average distance between the Sun and this major asteroid belt?
The law of cross-cutting relationships: anything that cuts across layers of rock is younger than the rocks that it has intruded into. Vocabulary Sequence Puzzles: Sequence 1 Sequence 2 Sequence 3 Sequences 1, 2 & 3 on one sheet Sequence 4 Sequence 5 Sequence 6 Sequence 7 Relative Dating Craters (see PPT to the right for answers) Worksheet on Radio Dating DBQ on Dinosaurs DBQ on The Natural History of LI DBQ on Magnetic Pole Reversals All three layers of rock (limestone, sandstone, shale) were made, then the volcano formed.
The fuzzy line is contact metamorphism where the hot magma "fried" the surrounding rock and changing it to metamorphic rock (ex. This image shows an igneous intrusion cutting through sedimentary layers.
As this moist air flowed over the Tug Hill Plateau, the plateau received a 36-inch snowfall.
This snow fell from clouds that formed when rising air was (1) cooled by expansion, causing water vapor to condense (2) cooled by compression, causing water vapor to condense (3) warmed by expansion, causing water vapor to evaporate (4) warmed by compression, causing water vapor to evaporate During a rainfall, surface runoff will probably be greatest in an area that has a (1) steep slope and a clay-covered surface (2) steep slope and a gravel-covered surface (3) gentle slope and a grass-covered surface (4) gentle slope and a tree-covered surface The cross section below illustrates the general sorting of sediment by a river as it flows from a mountain to a plain.
Sequencing the rock layers will show students how paleontologists use fossils to give relative dates to rock strata.
