Joint Earth Science Education Initiative: The Rock Cycle

Description

This describes the rock cycle in terms of ‘products’ and ‘processes’. Products are types of rock, sediment etc, and are presented in boxes. 'Processes' are effects that turn one product into another; for example the process of melting turns one product (metamorphic rock) into another product (magma).
