GeoJeopardy! Fridays #55

Time for GeoJeopardy! Fridays, because I am coming home from Europe today. But due to flying all day the answers to this week as well as the last 2 will be posted tomorrow (most likely).

- Geology -

At the mouth of the Mississippi River, this major class of rock is said to be more than 40,000 feet thick


Intense glaciation has formed these long, steep-sided coastal inlets; the ones in Norway & Chile are especially deep


This landmark in Rio's Guanabara Bay is an example of an inselberg, or "island mountain"


This crater is formed when a volcano explodes & the cone collapses; Oregon's Crater Lake is an example


Meaning "rock globe", it's the layer of rock encompassing the crust & outermost part of the upper mantle

All the answers as well as any other previous GeoJeopardy! questions can be found over at my website by clicking the link.  (Remember the answers will be posted ~July 16th)
