Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Bernhard Sulzer: regarding Andrea's comment: that would be "physically or chemically altered" - that's not used here, the term is simply alteriert/altered. // I am merely saying "altered" might be a more specific geological term.

  -> True but this alteration ultimately occurs as a result of physical and chemical processes.

agree  Andrea Winzer: "alteriert = physikalisch oder chemisch verändert"
