  • Rock Identifiion Lab

    Sedimentary Rock ID Lab As you now know, rocks are composed of minerals or a combination of minerals. Rocks are egorized into types based on the way in which they form. Sedimentary rocks form as weathered, eroded and deposited materials are compacted and cemented together beneath the weight of overlying sediments. Sedimentary rocks are classified into three major egories based .

  • Overview

    Overview Sedimentary Rocks Topic. This week, we continue to use our knowledge and skills to identify common sedimentary rocks. Sediments and sedimentary materials cover at least 75% of the Earth's surface, and hold some really critical and detailed information about the time and place where they formed, so being able to identify these materials, and use that to interpret Earth's history is ...

    In this laboratory we will investigate the optical properties of the common minerals found in sedimentary rocks. This is a preparatory exercise for following labs that will require you to identify minerals in sedimentary rocks. The only way you can become proficient at identifying minerals in thin section is to look down the microscope and make observations. Taking pictures with your cell ...
