what type of metamorphism rock turns heat to magma?
The kind of metamorphism that occurs when rock come into contact with a heat source such as magma and the rock surrounding the heat source get cooked?

thermal is when the rock is metamorphosed by heat more than pressure. regional is the opposite. so if a rock is close to the surface and gets metamorphosed next to a pluton, it is mainly heat (its not very deep, so there is not a lot of pressure, but it gets a lot of heat from the pluton). but if a rock is very deep and far from any magma, it will be under a…
In contact metamorphism - a nearby magma melt. In regional metamorphism - the geothermal gradient from the mantle/core In mylonites, the heat of friction across the fault plane. In astroblemes, the kinetic energy of the impactor. -------------------------------- The origin of the heat that creates metamorphic rock can be from friction caused by colliding plates, but by far the vast majority of the heat has originated in Earth's interior, caused by radioactive decay, remnant heat from…
When rock is in contact with or near a mass of magma a type of metamorphism called what takes place?
Cataclastic meta rocks are formed from rocks grinding past each other in fault zones. Burial metamorphism creates altered rock simply from overburden pressure. Contact metamorphism occurs from exposure to heat from an intrusive magma body. Regional metamorphism occurs from pressure and heat caused by tectonic forces.
Not from the magma, no. Cooled and solidified magma is classified as igneous. However, metamorphic rocks can be formed as the heat and hot fluids of intruding magma affect the properties and possibly the chemistry of the existing "country rock" into which it comes in contact. This process is called contact metamorphism.
Why are metamorphic rocks formed by contact metamorphism usually not as dense as those formed by reg?
One of the most popular metamorphic rocks is marble. Originally limestone, marble is generally created through regional metamorphism, which is when pressure and heat from where magma is pushing up through the Earth's crust effect rocks which are close by, but not actually touching the magma. Contact metamorphism changes the rocks that do actually touch the magma, this is how shale is usually metamorphosed into gneiss.
Intrusive or extrusive magma can heat and compress the surrounding rock materials, altering their crystal structure and chemical composition. This kind of metamorphism is called "local metamorphism." because the volume of changed rocks due to specific processes is relatively small.Local metamorphism is today, occurring in volcanically active regions an along active faults.
sedimentary rocks undergo metamorphism under certain heat and pressure to give the metamorphic rocks. the affect of this formation on environment is negligible as this frames the part of rock cycle. further these metamorphic rocks melts to form magma. magma further cools and solidify to form igneous rocks.
Contact metamorphism takes place locally near igneous intrusions. It is caused by low to moderate pressure, intense heat, and reactions to magma that is being metamorphosed. When contact metamorphism takes place with mudstone or shale (sedimentary rocks) slate is formed. The mudstone or shale is the parent rock or protolith.
