EARTH SCIENCE: INTERIOR OF EARTH
Terms in this set (19)
layer of solid rock that forms Earth's outer "skin"
layer of solid, hot rock 40 kilometers beneath the surface
uppermost part of mantle and the crust for a ridge layer about 100 kilometers thick
softer part of mantle below the lithosphere which is hotter and under increased pressure
solid material extending all the way to Earth's core
layer of molten metal that surrounds inner core
dense ball of solid metal of Iron and Nickel
the transfer of energy through empty space; has no direct contact between heat source and an object.
heat transfer by direct contact of particles of matter
transfer of heat by the movement of a heated fluid (includes liquids and gases). caused by differences in temperature and density within a fluid.
the flow that transfers heat in the mantle
Force that acts on rock to change its shape
squeezes rock until it folds or breaks
collision between two continental plates
one plate goes under another during
collision forming a deep trench where the two plates meet
curved line of volcanoes that forms parallel
to plate boundaries
tension causes oceanic crust to spread allowing hot rock from mantle to rise creating high ridges
when divergent boundaries occur within
a continent, they cause enormous splits in the crust
vibrations in the ground that result from movement along faults, or breaks in Earth's lithosphere
