Transcript

  • 1. A Journey to the Center of the Earth and back! The Layers of the Earth
  • 2. If you could burrow to the center of the Earth, what would you expect to happen to the pressure, the temperature, and the solidity of the matter?
  • 3. What are the 3 main layers of the Earth? <ul><li>Crust </li></ul><ul><li>Mantle </li></ul><ul><li>Core </li></ul>
  • 4. Let’s break it down! From the inside out…
  • 5. The Core <ul><li>The Inner Core </li></ul><ul><li>1,228 km in diameter </li></ul><ul><li>Metal (iron) </li></ul><ul><li>HOT, HOT, HOT!!!! </li></ul><ul><li>(6,000° C) </li></ul><ul><li>- Very dense sphere (SOLID) </li></ul><ul><li>The Outer Core </li></ul><ul><li>2,200 km thick </li></ul><ul><li>The Outer Core is LIQUID ! </li></ul>The Inner Core at 6,000° C is HOTTER than the surface of the sun at 5,500° C. BUT, the center of the sun is 15 million degrees C.
  • 6. The Mantle <ul><li>Mesosphere </li></ul><ul><li>2,500 km thick </li></ul><ul><li>“ meso-” means? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Middle </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Strong, inner part of mantle </li></ul><ul><li>Asthenosphere </li></ul><ul><li>250 km thick </li></ul><ul><li>“ astheno-” means? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Weak </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Soft layer (putty-like) </li></ul><ul><li>Viscous solid </li></ul><ul><li>EX: butter, clay </li></ul>
  • 7. The Lithosphere <ul><li>Made of: </li></ul><ul><li>Upper Ridge Part of the Mantle </li></ul><ul><li>and </li></ul><ul><li>Crust </li></ul><ul><li>15 – 300 km thick </li></ul><ul><li>“ litho-” means? </li></ul><ul><li>Rock </li></ul><ul><li>Is divided into pieces called? </li></ul><ul><li>Tectonic Plates </li></ul><ul><li>Plates slide over the Asthenosphere </li></ul>
  • 8. Crust <ul><li>Oceanic Crust – 5 km to 8 km </li></ul><ul><li>Continental Crust – 30 km to 100 km deep </li></ul>
  • 9. “ Layers of the Earth” handout
  • 10. Scale of Drawing: 500 km = 1 cm Asthenosphere Mesosphere Mantle Outer Core Inner Core Core Drawing thickness in centimeters (cm) Thickness in kilometers (km) Round to nearest hundred Layers
