1. To identify igneous and metamorphic rocks around Batu Melintang area.
2. To study the right way to conduct field measurements and techniques.
3. To differentiate rocks based on its types.

Geological mapping is a special-purpose map made to show geological features. Rock units
or geologic strata are shown by color or symbols to indicate where they are exposed at the
surface. Bedding

planes and




as faults, folds, foliations,

and lineations are shown with strike and dip or trend and plunge symbols which give these
features' three-dimensional orientations. Stratigraphic contour lines may be used to illustrate
the surface of a selected stratum illustrating the subsurface topographic trends of the strata.
Igneous is one of the three main rock types. Igneous rock is formed through the cooling and
solidification of magmaor lava. Igneous rock may form with or without crystallization, either
below the surface as intrusive (plutonic) rocks or on the surface as extrusive (volcanic) rocks.
This magma can be derived from partial melts of existing rocks in either a
planet's mantle or crust. Typically, the melting is caused by one or more of three processes
which are an increase in temperature, a decrease in pressure, or a change in composition
Metamorphic rocks arise from the transformation of existing rock types, in a process
called metamorphism, which means "change in form". The original rock (protolith) is
subjected to heat and pressure, causing profound physical and/or chemical change. The
protolith may be a sedimentary rock, an igneous rock or another older metamorphic rock.
Metamorphic rocks make up a large part of the Earth's crust and are classified by texture and
by chemical and mineral assemblage (metamorphic facies). They may be formed simply by
being deep beneath the Earth's surface, subjected to high temperatures and the great pressure
of the rock layers above it. They can form from tectonic processes such as continental
collisions, which cause horizontal pressure, friction and distortion. They are also formed
when rock is heated up by the intrusion of hot molten rock called magma from the Earth's
interior. The study of metamorphic rocks (now exposed at the Earth's surface following
erosion and uplift) provides information about the temperatures and pressures that occur at
great depths within the Earth's crust. Some examples
are gneiss, slate,marble, schist, and quartzite.

of metamorphic rocks

In the nutshell, for week 2 ( 4/3/2016 & 5/3/2016 ) we traversed to Batu Melintang and
Gunung Reng about 46 km for two days. For that week we have learned about Field
Measurement and Techniques for Igneous and Metamorphic Rock. After this field trip, we are
able practically identify both Igneous and Metamorphic Rock based on their uniquely
specified characteristics (physical appearance).
