Lecture 9 Monteverde
Deformation occurs because of the applied stress
Stress depends on the force per unit area
Pressure -uniform stress in all direction
Compression - squeezing (greater stress in one direction)
Tends to thicken material
Lecture 3 Monteverde
Ocean crust is denser than continental crust.
Mantle is larger by volume; density increases as we go deeper into the earth.
Core is iron, in the middle of the earth, has most density. (Less silica)
Margin - Where land
Lecture 2 Monteverde
Theia and Earth collision let them exchange pieces, like exchanging spit.
Some of the iron (from the core, which is entirely made of iron) from Theia (Mars-sized planet that
became moon later) goes to the Earth, and a little bit of Ea
Lecture 7 Monteverde
physical/mechanical: Larger smaller
Exfoliation: Rock relaxes with above pressure gone. Pops up.
Rock breaks up because of expanding/contracting (like a bridge)
Roots cause a lump in sidewalk.
Lecture 6 Monteverde
Igneous rocks: Rocks that solidify from magma or lava.
Volcanic: cooled above surface (lava)
Plutonic: cooled below surface (magma)
Ways to create magma:
Decompression melting: Occurs when rock ascends to elevation of lower pressure
