Shane Bogin W00812443 Wild Rock Write-up Observations: The rock that I found to do my write-up about is the sedimentary rock coal. The chunk of coal that I found is dark grey, with small pieces of what appears to be sand and other rocks within it, so
* folding and faulting
* mass wasting
* Igneous Rock > metamorphic rock
* increased pressure and temp due to tectonic stress
* divergent boundaries
* shallow earthquakes occur in a linear pattern along divergent boundaries
Compositional layers of the Earth
o How does the core differ from the rest of Earths layers composition wise?
The core is solid iron and very dense.
o What is the core made of (Fe+Ni)
Inner core is solid mass of Fe (Iron) and Ni (Nickle)

Weathering: The physical breakdown and chemical alteration of rocks and minerals at or
near Earths surface.
Erosion: The removal of weathered materials from their source area by running water,
Core: The interior part of Earth beginning at a depth of 2,900 km that probably consists
mostly of iron and nickel

o On which plate boundaries do we expect volcanoes to occur? Which plate
boundaries typically coincide with human population?
Convergent boundaries and divergent boundaries. Convergent boundaries are
Rivers and Streams
o How does stream energy relate to erosion, transportation, and deposition?
Gradient and discharge define the energy of the stream
