Question details

12. Pressure is responsible for which of the following changes that occur in metamorphic rock?

Increase in grain size

Increase in density

Change in the minerals present

Decrease in volatile content of the system

13. The most common non-foliated metamorphic rocks are

Slate and schist

Slate and quartzite

Quartz and calcite

Quartzite and marble

14. During the metamorphism of shale to slate

Clay minerals are metamorphosed to micas

Micas are metamorphosed to clay minerals

Quartz is metamorphosed to mica

Limestone is metamorphosed to marble

15. Schist is a high-grade metamorphic product of what parent rock?

Mudstone

Sandstone

Limestone

Gneiss

16. Schist is not associated with contact metamorphism because

Contact metamorphism doesn't produce foliated rocks

Contact metamorphism doesn't have any effect on shale, the protolith of schist

Magma that produces contact metamorphism is not hot enough to create a schist

There is no schist in contact with the Palisades sill

17. Serpentenite is the metamorphic equivalent of

Mudstone

Sandstone

Peridotite

Basalt

18. Regional metamorphism is associated with

Any convergent plate boundary

Only convergent plates in subduction zone

Both convergent and divergent plate boundaries

Intraplate hot spots

19. Regional metamorphism differs principally from contact metamorphism in that

Contact metamorphism takes place at higher temperatures

Regional metamorphism takes place at higher temperatures

Regional metamorphism takes place over a larger area

Regional metamorphism is restricted to major fault zones

20. In Pelham Bay Park, you can observe exposures of folded, foliated metamorphic rock. It is logical to deduce from this observation that

Pelham Bay Park experienced unusually high temperatures and pressures during metamorphism

Pelham Bay Park is underlain by Manhattan schist

Pelham Bay Park is underlain by marble

Regional metamorphism took place during the past in the area that is today Pelham Bay Park

21. The exposed roots of a mountain belt are most likely to show the effect of which kind of metamorphism?

Burial

Contact

Regional

Metasomatism

22. The intrusion of the Palisades sill into the surrounding sedimentary layers in what is now New Jersey caused which type of metamorphism?

Burial

Contact

Regional

Metasomatism
