What process forms igneous rocks? The formation of sedimentary rocks occurs under what conditions? Sedimentary rocks form during the assimilation of weathered particles into magma. If weathered particles are heated to the point where they melt, the result is sedimentary rock. When sediments are carried deep within Earth’s crust, sedimentary rocks can form. Sedimentary rocks form when weathered particles are cemented and/or compacted. When weathered particles are subjected to extreme heat and pressure, the result is sedimentary rock. Metamorphic rocks can form when which of the following conditions are met? As pre-existing rocks undergo crystallization, the result is metamorphic rock. Pre-existing rocks undergo metamorphism when they are subjected to heat and pressure without melting. When pre-existing rocks melt, they are transformed into metamorphic rocks. The presence of fossils in pre-existing rocks leads to the development of metamorphic rocks. Pre-existing rocks can undergo metamorphism when they are subjected to repeated freezing and thawing.
Which of the following agents move sediment from one place to another? CHOOSE ALL THAT APPLY. While working in the field, you discover an outcrop of metamorphic rocks. What can you conclude from this observation? You determine that these rocks formed in a volcano. You know that these rocks formed near the surface of Earth. You conclude that these rocks were deposited in a glacial moraine. You know that these rocks formed at great depth below the surface. You are certain that these rocks have undergone cementation and compaction. While vacationing in Hawaii you notice that the sands on the beach are composed of black sediments. What inferences can you make about these sediments? You determine that the sediments were deposited by wind. The sediments formed deep within Earth. You conclude that metamorphism has taken place. They were derived from the igneous rocks from which the islands were formed. You note that cementation and compaction are taking place.
Which of the following igneous rocks contains no mineral crystals? What is the term used to describe a very large, widespread, and deep intrusive body of igneous rock? In what type of igneous feature would you find rocks with a vesicular texture? Working in the field, you see a thin, dark-colored igneous sill across the valley. Without seeing the sill up close, what texture would you expect it to possess? Working in the field, you come upon a light-colored, fine-grained igneous rock that contains some very large dark-colored crystals. How do you account for this complex mineralogy? The light-colored crystals formed first, undergoing slow cooling, and dark crystals formed later. The large, dark-colored crystals were picked up as the lava flowed over the surface. The large, dark-colored crystals were part of the rock that the magma moved through. The dark crystals formed first, undergoing slow cooling, and the remainder cooled quickly. There were two separate and distinct eruptions. Which of the following agents is capable of moving sediment from the site of formation to the site of deposition? All of the answers are correct. Which is an example of a sedimentary rock composed of solid masses of intergrown crystals? You find a sedimentary rock that has all its flat particles aligned in parallel.
Discuss why you chose that market segment and how you chose the target marketing. 1. Identify bases for segmenting the market. 1. Select the target markets. 2. Develop profiles of resulting segments. 2. Develop positioning for each target market. 3. Develop measures of segment. 3. Develop marketing mix attractiveness for each target market. Guided Response: Review several of your colleagues’ posts and respond to at least two of your peers by 11:59 p.m. Day 7 of the week. You are encouraged to post your required replies earlier in the week to promote more meaningful interactive discourse in this discussion. Comment on your fellow learner’s conclusions regarding market segmentation and target markets. Are the segments clearly defined, or could they be broken down into smaller categories? Do the stated target markets represent a marketable demographic? You must use a minimum of one scholarly source to support each peer response. Continue to monitor the discussion forum until 5:00 p.m. Mountain Standard Time (MST) on Day 7 of the week and respond to anyone who replies to your initial post.
