In geology this refers to the changes in mineral assemblage and texture that result from subjecting a rock to conditions such pressures, temperatures, and chemical environments different from those under which the rock originally formed.

Structure and Metamorphism in the Mono Craters Quadrangle, Sierra Nevada, California. The Long Valley volcanic field (Bailey, ) is part of an active regional transtensional zone at the Sierra Nevada-Basin and Range eruptive history overlaps in time with smaller mafic-to-silicic volcanic fields along this transition zone, at Big Pine (Bateman, ) and Coso (Duffield and Bacon, ), respectively, 50 and km SSE of Long by:

    Understanding the Impact Cratering Process: a Simple Approach At some time in their life nearly every girl, boy (and adult) has thrown pebbles or cobbles into mud and watched nice round form. The force of the impacts create circular structures with raised rimmed wall; spatters of mud and smaller circular secondary craters may be seen (Fig. 1).

GEOL: Geology of. Most craters are volcanic, and although more than 95% of the world's volcanic rocks are basaltic, there are numerous categories (to be mentioned below). The complex explosion and collapse structures known as calderas (q.v.) often containing secondary craters, are treated separately.

Abstract. Metamorphism may be defined as any significant change in the texture, mineralogy, and/or bulk composition of a chiefly solid rock—not including partial or complete melting on the one hand, and weathering processes on the other—which results from the attendance of physical and chemical conditions different from those present during formation of the by: Metamorphism is driven by heat and pressure.

High heat can cause rock minerals to recrystallize in the process of metamorphism. Rocks that are buried deep in Earth are subjected to equal pressure from all directions. This confining pressure can cause a phase change but does not fold rocks. Click on the book chapter title to read more.

The Inyo Craters are a km-long chain of silicic lava domes, lava flows, and explosion craters along the eastern margin of Sierra Nevada south of Mono Craters near the town of Mammoth. Inyo Craters overtop the NW rim of the Pleistocene Long Valley caldera and extend onto the caldera floor, but are chemically and magmatically part of a different volcanic system.

Located in the Basin and Range province, Mono Basin is a 1 to 3 million year old, structural depression bordered by a fault escarpment on the eastern margin of Sierra Nevada (Mono, ). When the Farallon plate finished subducting under the North American plate 20 m.y.a, the Pacific plate started to slide northwest against the North American plate (Tierney, ).

The zone of metamorphism that surrounds the intrusion is called the halo (or aureole) and rarely extends more than meters into the country rock. (D) Geology of the Eldorado Springs quadrangle, Boulder and Jefferson Coun­ ties, Colorado, by John D.
