Chemical Sedimentary Rocks

Chemical Sedimentary Rocks Chemical sedimentary rocks form by precipitation of minerals from water Precipitation is when dissolved materials come out of water For example Take a glass of water and pour some salt (halite) into it The salt will dissolve into the water If you set the water in a hot and dry place (like Arizona) the water but

Sedimentary Rocks Formation Types and Examples

Sedimentary rocks are the most common rock types which are freely exposed on the earth's surface They are formed from other rock materials since they are made up from the buildup of weathered and eroded pre-existing rocks The weathering erosion and the eventual compaction of igneous metamorphic or formerly structured sedimentary rocks among other biological sedimentations leads

Clastic sedimentary rocks form by weathering processes which break down rocks into pebble sand or clay particles by exposure to wind ice and water Clastic and nonclastic sedimentary rocks are the only members of the rock family that contain fossils as well as indicators of the climate (ripple marks mudcracks and raindrops) that was present when the rock was formed
