clastic rocks are composed of fragments or clasts of pre-existing minerals and rock. a clast is a fragment of geological detritus chunks and smaller grains of rock broken off other rocks by physical weathering. geologists use the term clastic with reference to sedimentary rocks as well as to particles in sediment transport whether in
chemical sedimentary rock forms when mineral constituents in solution become supersaturated and inorganically precipitate. common chemical sedimentary rocks include oolitic limestone and rocks composed of evaporite minerals such as halite (rock salt) sylvite barite and gypsum.

soapstone (also known as steatite or soaprock) is a talc-schist which is a type of metamorphic rock.it is composed largely of the magnesium rich mineral talc.it is produced by dynamothermal metamorphism and metasomatism which occur in the zones where tectonic plates are subducted changing rocks by heat and pressure with influx of fluids but without melting.
soil organic carbon (soc) in the subsoil below 0.3 m accounts for the majority of total soc and may be as sensitive to climate change as topsoil soc. here we map global soc turnover times (τ) in
moon rocks fall into two main categories: those found in the lunar highlands (terrae) and those in the maria.the terrae consist dominantly of mafic plutonic rocks. regolith breccias with similar protoliths are also common. mare basalts come in three distinct series in direct relation to their titanium content: high-ti basalts low-ti basalts and very low-ti (vlt) basalts.
