8 3.1 layers of the earth

  1. 1. Layers of the Earth Intro http://player.discoveryeducation.com/in 8-3.1 dex.cfm?guidAssetId=C1B0E416-A17D- 45B6-875C- 88CCC8403AA7&blnFromSearch=1&prod uctcode=US

  3. 3. Learning Objectives8-3 The student will demonstrate an understanding of materials that determine the structure of the Earth and the processes that have altered this structure.8-3.1 Summarize the three layers of Earth – crust, mantle, and core – on the basis of relative position, density, and composition.
  4. 4. Essential Information• The Earth has layers that have specific conditions (states) and composition (made up of).
  5. 5. Summary of Earth’s LayersCopy Table into Notebook Layer Relative Position Density Composition Crust Outermost layer; thinnest under the ocean, thickest under continents; crust and top of mantle called the lithosphere Mantle Core
  6. 6. Summary of Earth’s LayersCopy Table into Notebook Layer Relative Position Density Composition Crust Outermost layer; thinnest under the ocean, thickest under continents; crust and top of mantle called the lithosphere Mantle Middle layer, thickest layer; top portion called the asthenosphere Core

Summary of Earth’s LayersCopy Table into Notebook Layer Relative Position Density Composition Crust Outermost layer; thinnest under the ocean, thickest under continents; crust and top of mantle called the lithosphere Mantle Middle layer, thickest layer; top portion called the asthenosphere Core Inner layer, consists of two parts – outer core and inner core
  8. 8. Summary of Earth’s LayersCopy Table into Notebook Layer Relative Position Density Composition Crust Outermost layer; Least dense layer thinnest under the overall; Oceanic ocean, thickest crust (basalt) is under continents; more dense than crust and top of continental crust mantle called the (granite) lithosphere Mantle Middle layer, thickest layer; top portion called the asthenosphere Core Inner layer, consists of two parts – outer core and inner core
  9. 9. Summary of Earth’s LayersCopy Table into Notebook Layer Relative Position Density Composition Crust Outermost layer; Least dense layer thinnest under the overall; Oceanic ocean, thickest crust (basalt) is under continents; more dense than crust and top of continental crust mantle called the (granite) lithosphere Mantle Middle layer, Density increases thickest layer; top with depth because portion called the of increasing asthenosphere pressure Core Inner layer, consists of two parts – outer core and inner core

  11. 11. Summary of Earth’s LayersCopy Table into Notebook Layer Relative Position Density Composition Crust Outermost layer; Least dense layer Solid Rock – mostly thinnest under the overall; Oceanic silicon and oxygen ocean, thickest crust (basalt) is Oceanic crust – under continents; more dense than basalt; crust and top of continental crust Continental crust – mantle called the (granite) granite lithosphere Mantle Middle layer, Density increases thickest layer; top with depth because portion called the of increasing asthenosphere pressure Core Inner layer, consists Heaviest material; of two parts – outer most dense layer core and inner core

  14. 14. How can you use your hands to remember the layers of the Earth?
  15. 15. Draw and label all 3 layers of the Earth
  16. 16. • Outermost layer; thinnest under the ocean, thickest under continents; contains the lithosphere
  17. 17. • Middle layer, thickest layer; top portion called the asthenosphere
  18. 18. • Inner layer, consists of two parts
  19. 19. • Heaviest material; most dense layer
  20. 20. • Density increases with depth because of increasing pressure
  21. 21. • Least dense layer overall; Oceanic crust (basalt) is more dense than continental crust (granite)
  22. 22. • Hot softened rock; contains iron and magnesium
  23. 23. • Solid Rock – mostly silicon and oxygen• Oceanic basalt• Continental granite
  24. 24. • Mostly iron and nickel; outer slow flowing liquid, inner part, solid
  25. 25. Solid Rock – mostlysilicon and oxygenOceanic crust – basalt;Continental crust –graniteHot softened rock;contains iron andmagnesiumMostly iron and nickel;outer core – slow flowingliquid, inner core, solid
  26. 26. Layers of the Earth ProjectDirections:1. Accurately label the layers of the Earth – Include the relative position – Density – composition2. Include at least 3 major features for each Earth layer
  27. 27. M&M Earth’s
  28. 28. The lithosphere is a "rocky“ rigid outermost shell of a rocky planet.On Earth, it comprises the crust and the portion of the upper mantlethat behaves elastically on time scales of thousands of years or more.
  29. 29. Asthenosphere - is a portion of the upper mantle just below the lithosphere thatis involved in plate tectonic movements. The asthenosphere is a highly viscous,mechanically weak deforming region, but pressures keeps it like a thick soupyplastic. The Asthenosphere has a relatively low density so Seismic waves passrelatively slowly through the asthenosphere compared to the overlyinglithosphere.
