A Tectonic Rock Cycle
The diagram below takes the outline tectonic rock cycle on the home page and explodes it into its details and rationalle. The Roman numerals in yellow circles are clickable and will take you to more detailed descriptions of the processes operating at that stage. Clicking the igneous rock names will take you to samples. Clicking the tectonic regime names (in blue script) will take you to a stage in the Wilson cycle where the processes are taking place.
