What are the igneous rocks of the ocean floor


Question asked by: lilrayshin

Asked on: 17 Feb 2010

Igneous rocks are most common for instance basalt.

These were formed at the boundary with the earth underneath and so come from giant underwater volcanoes, and that's why they are mainly all igneous rocks.
