background image Geology Exam III Study Guide 28 October 2016 Chapter 7 Review: 1. Choose the listing that shows the rocks in increasing degrees of metamorphism (i.e., from 
lower to higher grade).
A. migmatite, metaconglomerate, gneiss B. metaconglomerate, gneiss, migmatite C. gneiss, metaconglomerate, migmatite D. gneiss, migmatite, metaconglomerate 2. Identify the  FALSE  statement. Hydrothermal fluids  A. may consist of hot water, gases, or supercritical fluids. B. can accelerate metamorphic reactions. C. change a rock's chemical composition, a process known as exhumation. D. can be derived from groundwater or magma, or can be the product of metamorphic reactions. 3. Metamorphic aureoles typically contain nonfoliated rock like hornfels because  A. they form adjacent to an intruding pluton, which provides heat for metamorphism. B. they form as a consequence of shearing without a subsequent change in temperature or 
pressure.
C. compressional forces associated with mountain building provide the necessary pressure to 
create hornfels.
D. they form at shallow burial depths (less than 8 km). 4. Quartzite  A. is basically a solid mass of interlocking quartz grains. B.breaks around the separate grains of quartz that make it up. C. is always either white or gray. D. always shows strong compositional banding

B. results in the growth of new minerals that differ from the protolith. C. changes the texture (shape and size) of the grains. D.is a process by which grains push against one another, creating dissolution. 6. Tension (a type of stress)  A.is created by a pull perpendicular to a surface. B.is the reason a balloon collapses when you take it to the bottom of a pool C.occurs when rocks move sideways relative to each other. D.is a compression exerted equally from all sides. 7. What is the protolith of marble? A.quartz sandstone B. limestone C. phyllite D. gypsum 8. What type of foliation does slate, a common material used for roof shingles, exhibit? A. banding B. cleavage C. schistosity D. metamorphic differentiation 9. Which is  NOT  a common process by which metamorphic rocks are formed? A. pressure solution
background image Geology Exam III Study Guide 28 October 2016 B. plastic deformation C. schistosity D. recrystallization 10. Which of the following does  NOT  describe a change induced on protolith rocks due to  mountain building as a result of convergent­margin tectonics and continental collision?  A. Surface rock is sent to great depths beneath the new mountain belt. B. The once surface rock heats up due to igneous activity and the geothermal gradient. C. Hot magma rising beneath the converging continents heats seawater, which then rises through 
the crust to react with the surface rocks.
D. Compression and shearing metamorphose the once surface rock 11. Which of the following is  NOT  a common metamorphic facies? A. greenschist B. blueschist C. granulite D. mafic 12. Which of the following locations could  NOT  possibly be part of a shield?  A. Hawaii B. Canada C. Northern Europe D. Siberia 13. Which of the following rocks is classified as  non­ foliated? A. hornfels B. phyllite C. slate
