The Rock Cycle: Recycling Processes Within the Earth System

Rock Cycle Illustrated by Phil Stoffer (2005). It will give you a better understanding than the traditional rock cycle diagrams of old. It not only shows the different processes in the rock cycle (i.e. deposition), but it also shows the types of rocks (igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary) that are formed in the different geologic settings (volcanism, plutonism, tectonism). Download is available for poster-size printing. A simplified version is also available.
