Dynamic Earth Scienc

The 4 layers of the Earth Crust, Mantle, Outer Core, Inner core
Crust (size, made of..., makes up...) Thinnest layer, made of rock, makes up part of the (Lithosphere)
Continental Crust (Made of, Density, Thckness) Made of granite, less dense, thiner
Oceanic Crust ( made of, density, thickness) Basalt, more dense, thicker
Mantle (thickness, made of) Thicker Layer, made of magme
Asthenosphere upper part of mantle, convection cells
Outer core(made of) Liquid, iron nickel
Inner core (made of) Solid Iron, nickel
As depth increases, temputure increases
Plates Pieces the lithosphere is broken up into
Lithosphere big solid slabs of rock between earths crust and mantle
Plate tetonics magma rises in the mantle which moves to the lithospheric plates
Plate boundries edges where plates touch
Divergent PLates mover away from eachother
Convergent When plates move toward 1 another
Transfor plates move side to side
Collision 2 contenental plates collide to form moutains
Subduction 2 plates collide and 1 is forced under another to produce a deep sea trench and island chaines. One ocean plate and 1 continental plate collide with the ocean plate subducting beneath to produce volcanos. Crust is melted as it subducts ina down motion
