The Blue Lias Formation forms the near-vertical sea cliff just to the east of Lyme and comprises beds of strong limestone interbedded with stiff clay which grades upwards in strength to weak mudstone (Davis, 2007). Note the regular layering implying regular changes in depositional environment possibly caused by Milankovitch cycles (photograph: # Bruce Menzies) undergo at elevated pressure and/or temperature are known as metamorphism and the rocks that result are metamorphic rocks.

Slow cooling gives coarse-grained rocks . Rapid cooling gives fine-grained and glassy rocks. By mineral and chemical content: . High silica (Si) content sufficient for quartz to occur within the rock (acid and felsic) . Low silica content insufficient for quartz to occur. g. pyroxene and amphiboles). 31 Copyright © ICE Publishing, all rights reserved. SHORT COURSE IN GEOLOGY FOR CIVIL ENGINEERS The differences in mineral content can be recognised by differences in colour. Rocks with a high silica content are generally light in colour.

9 Continent–continent convergence (after Hamblin and Christiansen, 2001). , Upper Saddle River, NJ convergence results in one plate overriding the other for a short distance. Unlike the previous types of convergence described above, this type displays no outer swell, deep-sea trench or forearc wedge. Instead the two continents become compressed causing significant deformation by folding and thrust faulting to form a high mountain chain (Fig. 9). Ultimately the two continents become ‘welded’ together with the fold mountain chain marking the line of suture.
