Notes: Igneous Rocks
Intro to Igneous Rocks
Igneous rocks form when molten rocks cools and crystalizes.
Magma body is less dense than the surrounding rocks, it works its ways toward the
surface occasionally producing volcanic eruption.
Along with pyroclas

All the major topics in The Teacher-Friendly GuidesTM were built upon
observations of the natural world, and these observations are the clues that

Structural Interpretation of Seismic Reflection Data
Geology presents us with a basic problem. Because rocks are opaque, it is
very difficult to see through them and thus it is difficult to know what is the threedimensional geometr
Rock mass properties
Reliable estimates of the strength and deformation characteristics of rock masses are
required for almost any form of analysis used for the design of slopes, foundations
and underground excavations. Hoek and Brown

Solid Mechanics and Structural Geology
Up to this point, we have focused mostly on geometry and kinematics, borrowing a smattering of concepts from the much broader realm of solid mechanics.
The concepts that we have developed to t
