  • Ocean Persuasive Essay

    how come our oceans don't always change in shape? These are questions that have been asked before. When i explained the idea of how plate tectonics may have been the right answer to these questions i only stated that this could be a reason why the ocean has its shape. Plate tectonics according to google's dictionary is “a theory explaining the structure of the earth's crust and many associated phenomena as resulting from the interaction of rigid lithospheric plates that move slowly over the underlying mantle”. The reason why this could possibly be the reason why the ocean looks and occupies the world in the way it does, is because the process of the core to the crust is shifting and that cause all other things to shift as well. It is pretty much saying that when something happens, another will follow. The shifting of the core and the crust has caused the earth to move in a constant motion, changing its shape.the five major layers of the earth are the, outer core, inner core, mantle, lithosphere, and the asthenosphere. All of these have a major effect and reason to why and how the ocean was formed giving it the option to constantly shift and change throughout the years. What happens within the lithosphere is that it is broken up in many pieces and parts, called tectonic or crustal plates, which can go up to many sizes and shapes. Each of these crustal plates are are connected in a way, fitting in with each other like a puzzle, and because they are connected and so close to one…

  • Solar System Research Paper

    Earth has a core composed of two distinct parts: the inner core and the outer core. Both parts of the core are made up of mostly iron and some nickel. The difference is that those minerals in the inner core are solid and the same minerals in the outer core are liquid. The subsequent layer is the mantle which is sitting on top of the outer core. This layer is by far the thickest layer of Earth. Similar the core, the mantle contains mostly iron but in the form of silicate rocks. The mantle can…
