Lecture 10: META Rocks
I. Basics:
- Old component of continental crust called "Craton".
=> Craton - AKA Shield, are continents that have been
stable for billions of years.
- META rocks contain mineral resources.
- Used for building materials such as statues.
- META rocks is the result from pre-existing rock.
- META rocks are altered/changed rocks.
- Heat and pressure creates META rocks.
- Are different from their rock parents (both chemically and
physically different).
- Occurs deep inside the Earth.
- Don't need high or low temperature.
- META rocks are the "Middle Child" - Mid. Temperature and Mid.
Pressure.
=> SED rocks - shallow and low temperature.
=> Igneous rocks - need high pressure and high
temperature.
II. Pressure
- META rocks need to be put under pressure.
- Pressure controls primarily META rocks.

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!

Balancing social life With academics can be difficult, that is why I'm so glad that OneClass is out there where I can find the top notes for all of my classes. Now I can be the all-star student I want to be.

Pressure - META rocks need to be put under pressure. - Pressure controls primarily META rocks. - Two broad types of pressure exerted on rocks: 1. Confining Stress 2. Directed or Compression Stress => Found in Convergent Plate Boundary. - Different from the Parent: => Higher density and minerals altered. 1. Non-Foliated - No orientation => Formed around igneous intrusion. => High Temperature and low pressure. => Ex: Quartzite, Marble, Hornfels. => No layered or banded appearance. 2. Foliated - Have layered or banded appearance from the exposure to heat. => Layers are due to the pressure squeezing them flat. => Directed Minerals that don't melt will elongate and rotate. => Confining has high density and minerals are
