The act of intruding, or of forcing in; especially, the forcing (one's self) into a place without right or welcome; encroachment.
The penetrating of one rock, while in a plastic or metal state, into the cavities of another.
The opposite of extrusion. One of the classic behaviours of igneous rocks - emplaced within existing rocks perhaps along fractures.
The process of injection of magma into pre-existing rock
any type of molten igneous rock that has forced its way into the surrounding, solid rock.
Emplacement of magma (molten rock) into preexisting rock. Dikes, sill, and batholith are intrusion.
A igneous rock body that formed from magma that forced its way into, through or between subsurface rock units.
If a called internal subscriber is busy, the caller has the possibility of intruding into the current call if authorised to do so. The caller then has the possibility of talking to that subscriber
1. Injection of a magma into a pre-existing rock. 2. A body of rock resulting from the process of intrusion.
A magmatic intrusion occurs when molten magma forces its way into local sediment layers or rock. Intrusive features are below ground; we only see them on the surface after erosion, or man, removes overlying material and makes them visible. Back
A body of igneous rock which has forced itself into pre-existing rocks, either along some definite structural feature, or by deformation and cross-cutting of the invaded rocks. (verb) The action of magma forcing itself into pre-existing rocks.
The forcing of extraneous matter, as molten rock, into some other geologic formation.
entrance by force or without permission or welcome
the forcing of molten rock into fissures or between strata of an earlier rock formation
rock produced by an intrusive process
When a body of igneous rock invades older rock.- J ~ L
an injection of molten material into a volcano or into the upper part of the Earth's crust; the "feeder pipe" for an eruption.
It is a body of igneous rock which is emplaced into pre-existing rocks, either along some of the structural feature like a fault or by deformation and rupturing of the invaded rocks. Adjective: Intrusive.
igneous rock forced into a pre-existing rock formation.
The extent to which elements of the vehicle structure intrude into the passenger compartment space as a result of impact forces. The reduction in an interior dimension, due to door, footwell, or bulkhead intrusion.
Emplacement of magma (molten rock) into preexisting rock. Dikes, sills, and batholiths are intrusions.
A mass of igneous rock that, while it was liquid, intruded into older rock, then solidified.
A body of igneous rock formed by the consolidation of magma intruded into other rocks, in contrast to lava, which are extruded upon the surface.
The process of emplacement of magma in pre-existing rock; magmatic activity; also the igneous rock mass so formed within the surrounding rock.
a volume of igneous rock that was injected, while still molten, into the earth.s crust or into other rocks.
n. Magma (and the rock it forms) that has pushed into pre-existing rock; intrusive- adj.; plutonic- syn. extrusive- ant.
emplacement process of a magma mass, concerns also the plutonic body.
When magma is injected into pre-existing rock.
A body of igneous rock that is emplaced into pre-existing older rocks;
A body of igneous rock that was forced, as a liquid, into pre-existing rocks, it is always younger than the rock it has cross-cut.
the forcing of molten rock into fissures or between strata; the body of molten rockforced in and solidified in place. [AHDOS
The forcing of magma into an earlier rock formation.
Body of igneous rock that invades older rocks
a volume of igneous rock that has crystallized from a molten magma into the earth's crust or into other rocks.
In geology, an intrusion is a body of igneous rock that has crystallized from a molten magma below the surface of the Earth. Bodies of magma that solidify underground before they reach the surface of the earth are called plutons, named for Pluto, the Roman god of the underworld. Correspondingly, rocks of this kind are also referred to as igneous plutonic rocks or igneous intrusive rocks.
