Holes drilled several kilometers
into Earth’s crust provide direct
evidence about Earth’s interior in
the form of
Rock Samples
Geologists obtain
indirect evidence
about Earth’s
interior by
Recording and
Studying Seismic
waves
What is the
correct order
(starting from the
surface) of Earth’s
layers?
crust, mantle, outer
core, inner core
Earth’s inner core
is what in
structure?
a dense ball of solid
metal.
Name This Layer
And the sub layers
Mantle:
Lithosphere,
Asthenosphere,
Lower Mantle
When you touch a
hot pot or pan,
energy moves from
the pot to your
hand. This is called
Heat transfer
The transfer of
energy through
empty space is
called
Radiation
Heat transfer
within a fluid takes
place by
Convection
Currents
When the heat
source is removed
from a fluid,
convection currents
in the fluid will
Eventually Stop
Earth’s magnetic
field results from
movements in the
Outer Core
According to
Wegener’s
hypothesis of
continental drift,
the continents were
once joined
together in a single
landmass.
What is Pangaea?
the name of the
supercontinent that
existed millions of
years ago
Which type of
evidences were used
by Alfred Wegener
to support his
continental drift
hypothesis?
Landforms, Fossils,
Climate
Most geologists
rejected Alfred
Wegener’s idea of
continental drift
because
Wegener could not
identify a force
that could move
the continents.
Any trace of an
ancient organism
that has been
preserved in rock is
called a
Fossil
What technology
did scientists use in
the mid-1900s to
map the mid-ocean
ridge?
Sonar
In sea-floor
spreading, molten
material rises from
the mantle and
erupts
Along Mid-Ocean
Ridges
How did scientists
discover that rocks
farther away from
the mid-ocean
ridge were older
than those near it?
by determining the
age of rock samples
obtained by
drilling on the sea
floor
What did scientists
in a submersible see
when they observed
the mid-ocean
ridge?
rocks formed by
the rapid
hardening of
molten material
Most geologists
think that the
movement of
Earth’s plates is
caused by
Convection
Currents in the
Mantle
The geological theory
that states that pieces
of Earth’s lithosphere
are in constant, slow
motion is the theory of
Plate-Tectonics
A place where two
plates slip past each
other, moving in
opposite directions,
is known as a
Transform
Boundary
A rift valley forms
at a
Divergent Plate
Boundary
A collision between
two pieces of
continental crust at
a converging
boundary produces
a
Mountain Range
The place where
two plates come
together is known
as a
Convergent
Boundary
Make your wager
What is happening
at Z?
The edge of plate B
is plunging beneath
plate C and
melting in the
mantle.
