HA 730L Piedmont and Blue Ridge aquifers text

The undifferentiated sedimentaryrock aquifers consist of tightly cemented, predominately clastic rocks, many of which grade into metamorphic rocks. Undifferentiated sedimentary rocks are a minor component of the Blue Ridge Physiographic Province and are mainly along the western border of the province in North Carolina.

Sedimentary Rocks

Sedimentary Rocks. Rivers, oceans, winds, and rain runoff all have the ability to carry the particles washed off of eroding rocks. Such material, called detritus, consists of fragments of rocks and the energy of the transporting current is not strong enough to carry these particles, the particles drop out in the process of sedimentation.

Sedimentary rocks are formed on or near the Earth's surface, in contrast to metamorphic and igneous rocks, which are formed deep within the Earth. The most important geological processes that lead to the creation of sedimentary rocks are erosion, weathering, dissolution, precipitation, and lithifiion.

Sedimentary rock. The word 'sediment' comes from the Latin words sedimentum, meaning settling, or sedēre, to sit or sink down.. The processes of weathering and erosion gradually break up rocks into sediments. After sediments are deposited, they can become buried underneath layers of 'fresh' long periods of time, layers of sediments become compacted and cemented, and ...

Sedimentary Rock forms from particles, called sediment, that are worn off other rocks. The particles are sand, silt, and clay. Sand has the largest particles while clay has the smallest. If there are a lot of pebbles mixed with the sand, it is called gravel.

Sedimentary Rock # 1. Arkose: This is a sedimentary rock with a high feldspar content (usually orthoclase or microcline), derived from weathering of feldsparrich rocks like granites and gneisses. It contains some rock fragments and micas in a fine grained matrix. Red colouration is caused by the presence of hematite and iron staining.

Concretions — Paleontological Research Institution

 · Concretions form inside sediments before they harden into rocks, when they are still soft, as minerals within a sediment precipitate, sometimes in successive layers around a nucleus such as a shell or pebble. Rates of this formation vary, but can sometimes apparently be relatively rapid, over as short a period as months to years.

Sedimentary rocks contain clues, such as sedimentary structures which may show how they were formed. Most sedimentary rocks are formed from loose sediment which in the past was carried by currents of water, ice or in the air. These currents transport vast quantities of previously weathered and eroded material from one place to another.

Biochemical: The deposition of the biological remains of various organisms can create certain types of sedimentary rocks. Some examples are limestone (from the deposition of calcium carbonate, containing remains of corals, foraminifera, and mollusks), stromatolites (formed from deposition of microorganism biofilms of blue green algae), oil shale, and coal shale.
