Geology Discussion 4
Since marble is found in the mountainous regions paralleling the east coast of the U.S., what is the origin of the parent rock, and what type(s) of metamorphism did the rock go through to create the marble?
Did faulting play a role in the metamorphism, or is the faulting a consequence of the metamorphism? Defend your reasoning.
