User: Which statement best describes an igneous intrusion?

Weegy: s magma cools underground, it will begin to solidify within Earth's crust. [ Once completely crystallized, these masses of igneous intrusive rock are referred to as intrusions (because they form from magma that intruded into the crust) or as plutons (after Pluto, Greek god of the underworld). Both terms are used interchangeably by geologists, so take your pick. dikes - are relatively small igneous intrusions formed as magma penetrates into rock fractures and solidifies into thin, sheet-like bodies. Where dikes are very abundant they are referred to as dike swarms. ]

User: what is an igneous intrusion

Weegy: Igneous rock (derived from the Latin word igneus meaning of fire, from ignis meaning fire) is one of the three main rock types, the others being sedimentary and metamorphic rock. [ Igneous rock is formed through the cooling and solidification of magma or lava. Igneous rock may form with or without crystallization, either below the surface as intrusive (plutonic) rocks or on the surface as extrusive (volcanic) rocks. ]

An igneous intrusion (also called a laccolith or a plutonic formation) is a formation in which magma (molten rock) is trapped beneath the surface of the Earth and pushes the rock located above it into a dome shape.
