Description: This guide provides illustrated descriptions of 46 common and important varieties of igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rock found in the San Francisco Bay region. Rock types are described in context of their identification qualities, how they form, and where they occur. The guide also provides a discussion of regional geology, plate tectonics, the rock cycle, the significance of the selected rock types in relation to both earth history and the impact of mineral resources on the development in the region.
