Rocks

The geological processes operating on Earth can be divided into two large groups: endogenous processes - taking place in the depths of the earth's crust and exogenous processes - taking place on its surface. Procesy skałotwórcze

The chemical composition of the earth's crust

The chemical composition of the earth's crust.

Rocks that make up the earth's crust formed as a result of long-term, rock-forming processes that take place sometimes for millions of years. During their history, they have undergone various displacements, so, że niektóre powstałe głęboko w skorupie ziemskiej znajdują się
