What are the features of a rock that identify it as sedimentary?
Are all sedimentary rocks identified the same way?
This PD will take no more than 30 minutes of your time. Extra time for Q&A can follow as required.
Do you have a mystery rock you think might be sedimentary? Take some good quality photographs and send them through ahead of time* and we'll try and do some virtual ID for you too!
If this date doesn't suit contact us by email and propose an aternative. We can be flexible and add extra dates or times on demand!
* Send photographs of mystery rocks here. Good resolution and depth of field is essential. Make sure photographs include some form of scale.
NOTE: Identifying rockss can be hard at the best of times and doing it from photographs is far from ideal and we make no promises we can indentify anything or get it right even if we give it a try! However, one thing is for sure: if we cannot easily identify a specimen chances are it should not be in a school teaching set!
