Some places inside Earth are so hot that rock melts. Melted rock inside the Earth is called magma. Magma can be hotter than 1, o C. When magma erupts onto Earth’s surface, it is known as lava (Figure below). Minerals form when magma and lava cool. Some minerals crystallize at hotter temperatures. These minerals form first.

Each of California‘s regions is defined by the major geology facts and features within that region.

Minerals react to changing P,T conditions-> metamorphic petrology. Ultimately minerals control e.g. the composition of seawater through weathering input in the ocean, sequestering of elements in the altered oceanic crust. On the other hand, interaction between ocean and oceanic crust (clay minerals) output (draw a simple diagram)File Size: KB.
