Forces Shaping Earth

the innermost layer of Earth's interior that is mostly solid iron inner core
lies above the inner core and is made of molten metal outer core
the largest layer of Earth's interior mantle
Earth's outermost layer crust
the rigid upper part of the Earth's mantle and the crust lithosphere
sections of the Earth's crust that move around on the plastic like asthenosphere plates
large fractures in rocks along which movement occurs faults
when one plate sinks underneath another plate subduction
mountains made of huge blocks of rock that are separated from surrounding rock by faults fault-block mountains
mountains formed by the folding of rock layers caused by compressional forces folded mountains
mountains formed when forces inside Earth push up the crust upwarped mountains
mountains that form when layers of lava pile up to form a cone-shape volcanic mountain
the principle that Earth's lithosphere floats on a plasticlike upper part of the mantle called the asthenosphere isostasy
