What effect does wind have on metamorphic rocks?
wears them away
Rocks are categorized in sedimentary, igneous and metamorphic rocks.. igneous rocks come from the solidification of magma.. sedimentary rocks come from rocks which already exist and they are altered and transported by agents like rain, wind etc.. metamorphic rocks are rocks which had undergone metamorphosis through heat, pressure or friction..
Metamorphic rocks are classified as being foliated or being non-foliated. Foliated metamorphic rocks have visible banding or sheet-like layering. Slate, phyllite, gneiss, and schist are foliated metamorphic rocks. Non-foliated metamorphic rocks do not display banding or layering. Marble and quartzite are non-foliated metamorphic rocks. Metamorphic rocks can also be classified as either regional metamorphic rocks or contact metamorphic rocks, depending on their method of formation.
There are three major types of rocks: igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary. Rocks are classified based on the process by which they were formed. Sedimentary rocks form from sand, dust, and tiny rock particles that are fused by water and extreme pressure over time. Igneous rocks form from cooled magma or lava; depending on how fast they were cooled and solidified, igneous rocks may or may not go through crystallization. Metamorphic rocks are rocks that changed…
