Correct! Here's a few more answers that might be acceptable, most of them connecting in a way to your answers.

[hide]Composition of rock (ex. halite vs granite), pressure, depth, etc.[/hide]

Care to share another question?

Uncomformities
[b]disconformity:[/b] parallel layers of sedimentary rocks followed by erosion then more paralel deposit of sedimentary rocks. [b]noncomformity:[/b] Metamorphic or igneous rocks deposit erodes at the surface and sedimentary rocks gets deposited. [b]Angular comformity: [/b] Sediments are uplifted and tilted then gets eroded then sedimentary are deposited. [b] paraconformity: [/b] strata is paralel and no apparent erosion
