Question Description

Assignment Chapter 8: Deformation and Metamorphism

OBJECTIVES

  • Understand the concepts of confining and differential stress (compression, tension, and shear).
  • Understand the difference between brittle and plastic deformation
  • Acquire criteria for identifying basic types of folds and faults
  • Understand the concept of metamorphism and their associated physical and chemical processes.
  • Understand the difference between contact and regional metamorphism, and contrast the different conditions of pressure and temperature at which they occur.
  • Understand and identify the geological context for different types of metamorphism.
