(4) a surface exposure of bedrock not covered with surficial material or water.
The part of a rock formation that appears at the earth's surfaces, often protruding above the surrounding ground.
The part of a geological formation that appears at the surface of the earth and usually exposed along a highway roadcut or cliff face.

a place where old rock is exposed by wind and water erosion and by other people's digging
Bedrock or strata projecting through the overlying cover of detritus and soil to be exposed at surface.
The area where an aquifer is present at or near the land surface â€“ where it â€œcrops out.
A term used in connection with a vein or lode as an essential part of the definition of apex. It does not necessarily imply the visible presentation of the mineral on the surface of the earth, but includes those deposits that are so near to the surface as to be found easily by digging.
the emergence of a stratum, vein or rock at the surface.
an outcrop is any appearance of rock at the surface of the earth.
the cropping out of subsurface rock stratum,(bedrock), exposed at or near the surface of the ground

Geological structure which breaks through the surface of the earth.
A mass of rock that appears at the Earth surface.
Bedrock which is exposed at the earth's surface
A rock formation that protrudes through the level of the surrounding soil.

The point where the vein or lode of a metal comes to the surface of the earth's crust and is visible.
An exposure of rock or mineral deposit that can be seen on surface, i.e. that is not covered by soil or water.
Rock that is exposed at the surface of the earth.
Any place where bedrock is visible on the surface of the Earth.
a place where rock is exposed at the Earth's surface and can be examined without digging
occurence to the ground surface of bedrock (rocky or not) representative of the geologic background.
The outcrop is the edge or surface of a mineral deposit or sedimentary bed that appears upon the surface.
Bedrock that protrudes through the soil.
The exposed portion of a buried layer of rock.
The part of a rock formation that appears at the surface of the ground.
That part of a rock unit that is exposed at the earth's surface.
Area of exposed bedrock at the Earth's surface with no overlying deposits of soil or regolith.
a segment of bedrock exposed to the atmosphere.
That part of a geologic formation that appears at the surface of the Earth.
Outcrop is a geological term referring to the appearance of bedrock or superficial deposits exposed at the surface of the Earth. In most places the bedrock or superficial deposits are covered by a mantle of soil and vegetation and cannot be seen or examined closely. However in places where the overlying cover is removed through erosion, the rock may be exposed, or crop out.
