The Rock Cycle
The Rock Cycle was founded by James Hutton (1726-1797). The Rock Cycle is the geological transition that continually changes the type of Rock. Igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary rocks are 3 classifications scientist have divided up. The types of rocks change based on the forces acted. The forces can be erosion, weathering, compacting, pressurizing, heated melted, and many more. The Rock Cycle is never created or destroyed. The process is like recycling.
Sandstones are mainly found in areas near sand. Sandstones can almost form in any type of environment from freezing temperatures to extremly hot temperatures like in deserts.
Sandstone is mainly found in the deserted areas like in western America, and center of Africa(near Sahara Desert).
