Title: Metamorphic Rocks
Url: http://volcano.oregonstate.edu/metamorphic-rocks
Publisher: Oregon State University. Dept. of Geosciences
Description: This interactive lesson on metamorphic rocks starts with a review of the rock cycle and goes on to describe the relationship between metamorphic rocks and their parent rock. The lesson then describes the agents of metamorphism (temperature, pressure, and chemical change) and moves into a discussion on contact, regional, and dynamic metamorphism. The remainder of the lesson consists of descriptions of foliated rocks such as slate, schist, and gneiss, and the non-foliates exemplified by quartzite and white marble.
