Dynamic Metamorphism

dynamic metamorphism

[dī¦nam·ik ‚med·ə′mȯr‚fiz·əm]
Metamorphism resulting exclusively or largely from rock deformation, principally faulting and folding. Also known as dynamometamorphism.

Metamorphism, Dynamic


the alteration of rock under the effect of the pressure that develops in the earth’s crust within zones of crush and fracture during folding processes. Dynamic metamorphism causes the mechanical decomposition of rock, with the formation of mylonites, as well as the recrystallization of the primary rock components, with the development of schistosity.
