CHARACTERISTICS OF ROCK

:
1) Layering Thickness: 1m - 2.5m

2) Grain size: Coarse

3) Colour: Pinkish Brown (Iron)

4) Structures:
- Graded-bedding, Fluvial Fan (meandering)
Sedimentary Rock
- Formed on the earth’s surface by hydrologic system.

- Involve: Weathering
Transportation
Deposition
Lithification

- Types: 1. Detrital/Clastic - cemented sediment grains that are fragments of
Pre-existing rocks.
2. Chemical - deposited by precipitation of minerals from solution.
3. Organic - composed of organic carbon compound.
