U09 Internal Dynamics

  1. 1. Internal dynamics of the Earth CONTENTS RESOURCES
  2. 2. CONTENTS INTERNAL DYNAMICS OF THE EARTH The interior of the Earth Why the interior is so hot Characteristics Volcanic eruptions Volcanic eruptions Volcanic material Types of eruptions Earthquakes Earthquakes Effects Seismic waves Reducing the damages Reducing the damage Warning systems Mountain building Relief features Distribution of seismic and volcanic activity Interaction of processes Rocks Igneous rocks Metamorphic rocks The rock cycle Internal heat Phenomena Evidence Tectonic plates Tectonic plates
  3. 3. RESOURCES Evidence of the heat from the interior of the Earth Why the interior of the Earth is so hot Characteristics of the interior of the Earth Phenomena produced by internal energy Volcanic eruptions Eruptions and volcanic material Types of eruptions Earthquakes Effects of earthquakes Reducing the damage Warning systems Mountain building and relief features Interaction of internal and external processes Igneous rocks Metamorphic rocks Seismic waves Tectonic plates Distribution of seismic and volcanic activity The rock cycle Links The interior of the Earth
  4. 4. Why the interior of the Earth is so hot meteorite Giant meteorites continually collided with the Earth. As the Earth heated up, it expanded in size. Metal materials sunk to the centre. Earth today 4,000 million years ago 4,600 million years ago solid crust ocean liquid outer core solid inner core (6,000 ºC) solid mantle metal materials crust mantle nucleus
  5. 5. Characteristics of the interior of the Earth <ul><li>At a depth of 50 km: </li></ul><ul><li>the temperature is 600 ºC </li></ul><ul><li>the pressure is 20,000 atmospheres </li></ul>Temperature and pressure increase with depth. Rate of increase in temperature: 30 ºC per kilometre GEOTHERMAL GRADIENT
  6. 6. Tectonic plates
  7. 7. Tectonic plates At divergent boundaries, plates move apart. At convergent boundaries, plates push together. At transform boundaries, plates slide by each other. Plates move in three ways.
  8. 8. Volcanic eruptions Molten rock and gases are ejected through the Earth’s crust. Phenomena produced by internal energy Earthquakes A violent trembling of the Earth’s crust which lasts a short time and varies in intensity. Continental drift Isostasy Slow vertical movement of the Earth’s crust. A slow horizontal movement of the continents.
  9. 9. Formation of a magnetic field Evidence of heat from the interior of the Earth Formation of the atmosphere Hot rocks Hydrothermal phenomena
