By: Peyton and Noah

A cycle of processes by rocks in the earths crust, involving igneous intrusion, uplift, erosion, transportation, deposition as sedimentary rock, metamorphism, remelting and further igneous intrusion

Igneous rocks are formed from magma and lava cooling formed from igneous, metaphoric, or sedimentary rocks which have melted because of plate collision and subduction. When igneous rocks are weathered and eroded they travel and then get formed to sedimentary by getting smushed together, the process is called lithification. Lithification further explained is when water is taken away by pressures. Metamorphic and igneous can be made a sedimentary by that process.
