All about the 3 main layers of planet Earth https://biofera.org/all-about-the-3-main-layers-of-planet-earth/ Thu, 10 Nov 2022 11:45:32 +0000 https://biofera.org/all-about-the-3-main-layers-of-planet-earth/

solar wind, a continuous stream of charged particles from the Sun’s upper atmosphere, carrying away lighter elements like hydrogen and helium. Simply put, the materials left behind after the sun formed began to clump together.

Big bang conceptual image

The heavy, rocky material left behind coalesced to form smaller terrestrial features, such as planets, including Earth. Relatively heavier elements, such as iron and nickel, flowed towards the center of the Earth. At a time, silicon and oxygen rose to the Earth’s surface. However, at this time, the entire Earth remained in a melting state.

Even within this widely accepted idea, scientists are still puzzled as to how the Earth was formed. Yet other questions exist, such as; What is the composition of the Earth? How many layers of the Earth exist? And how are they different? How do they influence events on Earth? Better yet, is there anything else there?

How does seismology reveal the layers of the Earth?

Thanks to developments in seismology, we now know the answers to many questions about the Earth’s interior. Scientists can use their knowledge of sound waves, of the same type as earthquake generate, to examine the nature of the Earth’s layers.

They study the behavior of sound waves as they pass through the different layers of the Earth. This made possible the development of a simple model, like the one below showing the interior of the Earth.

What are the chemical layers of the Earth?

3 Main Layers of Planet Earth: Here's Everything You Need to Know

The structure of the Earth based on chemical differences.

Generally, there are three main layers inside the Earth. These include the crust, the mantle and the core, which itself is divided into two layers – the inner core and the outer core.

These layers not only differ in their compositions and characteristics, but also have distinct effects on the course of events that occur on the Earth’s surface. So without further ado, let’s dive deeper into the mysterious layers beneath us.

What is the earth’s crust made of and how thick is it?

The best part of a pizza is its crust, right? The Earth has a crust, although this one has no cheese, and compared to its other layers, this part is relatively thin. This layer exists in two different forms; continental and oceanic crust.

Continental crust is rich in felsic materials — those containing an element called silica. It is about 20 to 70 kilometers thick. On the other hand, the oceanic crust is made up of mafic materials, that is to say rich in iron and magnesium, and is about 5 to 10 kilometers thick.

Yet one of the most crucial differences between continental and oceanic crusts is their density. Oceanic crust is denser than continental crust. Therefore, when a piece of oceanic crust collides with continental crust, the former slides under the latter in a process called subduction.

The Moon has had volcanoes much more recently than we thought, new study finds: ScienceAlert https://biofera.org/the-moon-has-had-volcanoes-much-more-recently-than-we-thought-new-study-finds-sciencealert/ Sat, 05 Nov 2022 18:11:15 +0000 https://biofera.org/the-moon-has-had-volcanoes-much-more-recently-than-we-thought-new-study-finds-sciencealert/

Fifty years ago, NASA and the Soviet space program conducted the first sample return missions since the moon. This included moon rocks brought back to Earth by the Apollo Astronauts and those obtained by robotic missions as part of the Soviet Luna program.

Analysis of these rocks has revealed a great deal about the Moon’s composition, formation, and geological history. In particular, scientists have concluded that the rocks were formed from volcanic eruptions more than 3 billion years ago.

In recent years, there has been a resurgence in lunar exploration as NASA and other space agencies have sent robotic missions to the Moon (in preparation for crewed missions).

For example, China has sent several orbiters, landers and rovers to the Moon under the Chang’e program, including sample return missions.

A new study led by planetary scientists from chinese academy of sciences (CAS) analyzed samples obtained by the Chang’e-5 rover dating back to 2 billion years ago.

Their research could provide valuable insight into how young volcanism shaped the lunar surface.

The research was carried out by a team from Institute of Geology and Geophysics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (IGGCAS), directed by Su Bin, Yuan Jiangyan and Chen Yi – members of the IGGCAS Laboratory of Lithospheric Evolution and Terrestrial and Planetary Physics.

They were joined by researchers from Nanjing University’s Lunar and Planetary Science Institute (LPSI) and the CAS Center for Excellence in Comparative Planetology. An article describing their findings appeared in the journal Scientists progress October 21.

Based on samples returned from the Apollo and Luna missions, scientists have theorized that the Moon had been geologically dead for 3 billion years.

However, new lunar rock samples obtained by the Chang’e-5 mission (and returned to Earth in 2021) were only 2 billion years old, indicating that volcanic activity occurred at least a billion years older than expected.

As a small rocky body, the heat that fueled volcanism on the Moon should have been lost long before these eruptions occurred.

Previously, scientists have speculated that late-stage volcanism may have been driven by high water content or the decay of radioactive elements in the lunar mantle. However, the numerous analyzes carried out on the samples obtained by the Chang’e-5 rover have dismissed this consensus.

Based on their analysis, CAS researchers found that low-melting minerals in the mantle could have allowed for compression, leading to young volcanism. Professor Chen Explain in a recent CAS statement:

“The recent melting of the lunar mantle can be achieved either by raising the temperature or by lowering the melting point,” he said. “To better understand this problem, we should estimate the temperature and pressure in which the young volcanism was created.”

For their analysis, the CAS team conducted a series of fractional crystallization and lunar mantle melting simulations that compared 27 basalt clasts obtained by the Chang’e-5 mission to those returned by the Apollo missions.

They found that young magma samples had higher concentrations of calcium oxide and titanium oxide than older Apollo magma samples.

The presence of these minerals, which melt more readily than previous mineral accumulations in the lunar mantle, means that the volcanism would have been driven by gravity and caused the mantle materials to overturn.

Their analysis revealed that mantle compression could have occurred at similar depths but at cooler temperatures that would still have produced volcanoes.

This research is no different from what planetary scientists have learned about March during the last years. Billions of years agothe red planet had thousands of eruptions on its surface, some of which have given rise to the largest volcanoes in the solar system (such as Olympus Mons).

Scientists suspect that Mars became geologically dead when its interior cooled. But recent findings indicate that he may still experience limited volcanic activity.

This study presents the first viable explanation for young volcanism on the Moon that is consistent with samples returned from the Chang’e-5 rover.

This study could inform future planetary studies of the thermal and geological evolution of the Moon.

Like Dr. Su noted:

“This is a fascinating result, indicating a significant contribution of oceanic accumulations of late-stage lunar magma to the volcanic formation of Chang’e-5. We found that Chang’e-5 magma was produced at similar depths but 80 degrees Celsius cooler than older Apollo magmas.This means that the lunar mantle experienced a slow and sustained cooling from 80 degrees Celsius around 3 billion years ago to 2 billion years ago.

Anson Marston Emeritus Professor of Engineering and Head of Faculty Vance Coffman Valery Levitas

Generic earthquake graphAssumptions and theory regarding what happens in deep earthquakes were supported by Professor Emeritus Anson Marston of Aerospace Engineering and Faculty Director Vance Coffman Valery Levitasin his early work on geophysical problems.

A recently published paper, “Solving the Riddles of the Phase Transformation Based Mechanism of the Strong Deep Earthquake”, was published in Nature Communications, one of the top-ranked scientific journals.

Deep-focus earthquakes have a hypocenter at a depth of 350 to 660 kilometers and occur almost exclusively at converging boundaries in association with subducted oceanic lithosphere. However, many questions have surrounded the details of what happens with the processes of these earthquakes.

Levitas’ findings are hailed not only as altering existing concepts regarding the initiation of deep earthquakes, but also as altering general geophysical concepts regarding how phase transformations occur in the earth.

Valery Levitas Research Post Chart
Graphics from Levitas’ post illustrate the results of his in-depth study of earthquakes

The research uses a combination of several innovative concepts that quantitatively solve the puzzles regarding the process. Levitas’ research looked at the phase transformations that cause these earthquakes and analyzed them in a way never before used for geological materials with what he presented as “plastic deformation induced” phase transformations. instead of the conventionally accepted “pressure/strain induced” transformations.

The work finds a 3D analytical solution for the strain-transformation-heating coupling in a shear band. This solution predicts conditions for severe (singular) transformation-induced plasticity (TRIP) and a self-inflated deformation-transformation-heating process due to positive thermomechanical-chemical feedback, which sheds new light on this area. of study.

]]> What is the Lithosphere? – World Atlas https://biofera.org/what-is-the-lithosphere-world-atlas/ Thu, 27 Oct 2022 07:46:00 +0000 https://biofera.org/what-is-the-lithosphere-world-atlas/

Lithosphere refers to the hard, rocky outer layer of any terrestrial planet or natural satellite. On Earththe lithosphere is mainly composed of crust and the solid outer part of the stem coat. One of the major spheres of the Earth, the lithosphere is primarily the terrestrial component comprising solid landmasses such as continents and islands on which all biological life exists. The lithosphere is seriously affected by human activities such as mining, deforestation, agriculture, overgrazing and urbanization.

Why is it called lithosphere?

A diagram showing the extent of the lithosphere on Earth.

The term lithosphere is derived from the Greek words lithoswhich means rocks or stones, and sphaeros, which means sphere. The lithosphere or rocksphere thus designates the hard and rocky outer layer of the Earth, made up of the crust and the upper mantle. The lithosphere can extend to a depth of more than 100 km. Beneath the lithosphere is the asthenosphere, which refers to the weakest, hottest, and deepest part of the upper mantle. The lithosphere stays hard longer and deforms elastically, while the asthenosphere deforms viscously. The lithosphere is therefore less ductile than the asthenosphere.

History of the concept of lithosphere

The concept of the lithosphere as the solid outer layer of the Earth was first proposed by English mathematician Augustus Edward Hough Love in his 1911 monograph. The concept was further developed by American geologist Joseph Barrell, who introduced the term lithosphere. Canadian geologist Reginald Aldworth Daly further reinforced these concepts. The work of Love, Barrell and Daly is widely revered by the geophysicist and geologist communities, serving as the backbone of the theory of tectonic plates.

Composition of the lithosphere

The composition of the lithosphere varies depending on whether it is on land or under the oceans. It is known that the earth’s crust is not homogeneous and is composed of different layers of rock, including sedimentary (at the top), metamorphic (middle) and basalt rocks (bottom). In addition, the lithosphere is fragmented into several large tectonic plates which move slowly but continuously at an average speed of about 10cm.

Types of lithosphere

There are mainly two types of lithosphere: oceanic and continental.

oceanic lithosphere

ocean lithosphere
The seabed is part of the lithosphere.

Oceanic lithosphere refers to the lithosphere associated with the oceanic crust found beneath the seas and oceans. Oceanic lithosphere includes mafic crust and ultramafic mantle and tends to be comparatively denser than continental lithosphere. Young oceanic lithosphere is typically found on mid-ocean ridges, while old oceanic lithosphere thickens as it ages and moves away from the mid-ocean ridge, recycling at the mid-ocean ridge. oceanic. subduction areas.

This thickening of the oceanic lithosphere usually occurs through conductive cooling, where the hot asthenosphere is converted into a lithospheric mantle. It should be noted that the oceanic lithosphere is relatively younger than the continental lithosphere, and the oldest oceanic lithosphere is around 170 million years old.

Continental lithosphere

lithosphere
Layer of soil and rock on the earth’s crust forming the lithosphere.

Continental lithosphere refers to the lithosphere associated with continental crust. The average thickness of this lithosphere varies between 40 km and 280 km. The continental lithosphere represents approximately 40% of the earth’s surface and 70% of the volume of the earth’s crust. Scientists believe that the Earth originally had no continental crust, but eventually the fractional differentiation of oceanic crust led to the formation of continental crust.

The continental lithosphere is therefore quite old than the oceanic lithosphere, and the oldest parts of the continental lithosphere are found under the cratons. However, due to its relatively low density, continental lithosphere is not recycled in subduction zones, as it cannot subduct more than 100 km.

Subducted lithosphere

Several 21st century geophysical studies have revealed that there may be many large chunks of recycled lithospheric elements that have been subducted up to 2900 km into the mantle. There is a strong belief that some pieces of the lithosphere may still be floating in the upper mantle, and some pieces may descend about 400 km while still physically attached to continental plates higher on the Earth’s surface.

Importance of the lithosphere

Lithosphere
Roots of plants growing in the lithosphere.

Being one of the main spheres of the Earth, the lithosphere greatly helps in the flourishing of life on the planet. The upper part of the lithosphere which chemically interacts with the other three spheres is called the pedosphere. Besides being a rich source of minerals, the lithosphere provides our forests, grasslands, agricultural lands, and lands for human settlements. The movement of tectonic plates is also responsible for the formation of mountains, volcanoes and continents.

Our earth is mainly composed of 4 layers. Inner core, outer core, mantle and crust. It is known that this crust and the core of the upper mantle are also known as the lithosphere. This 50 km thick layer remains divided into several sections. In other words, it is also called tectonic plates. These “tectonic plates” continue to move in their place. But when that plate starts to move too much, we call it an earthquake.

What do you do when an earthquake occurs?

  • If you are inside the house during the earthquake, sit on the floor.
  • Cover your head and face with your hands when sitting under a table or sturdy piece of furniture in the house.
  • Stay indoors until the earthquake hits and only leave your house after the shaking stops.
  • If there is an earthquake at night and you are lying on the bed, lie down, cover your head with a pillow.
  • Immediately turn off all electrical switches in the house.
  • If you are present in a building, exit immediately and enter the open air.
  • Do not use the elevator at all when coming down from the building.
  • If it is not possible to descend from the building, hide under a nearby table, high pole or bed.
  • If you are buried under debris during an earthquake, first cover your mouth with a tissue or rag.
  • Keep playing the pipe or the wall to signal your presence under the rubble, so that rescuers can find evidence that you are alive.
  • If you don’t have a solution, keep shouting and don’t get discouraged at all.

New Terra Classic Rug (LUNC) Pulls In Town https://biofera.org/new-terra-classic-rug-lunc-pulls-in-town/ Fri, 07 Oct 2022 11:04:39 +0000 https://biofera.org/new-terra-classic-rug-lunc-pulls-in-town/

In recent days, the new Terra Network channel, Terra Classic (LUNC), has been making headlines and one of the reasons is the Terra Classic Revival roadmap from the Terra Rebels developer group.

This is the group of developers who worked for the success of the 1.2% tax cut proposal. On September 29, the Terra Rebel even released the official Terra Classic revival roadmap to improve the Terra Classic network.

Carpet runs increase with popularity of Terra Classic

The Terra Rebels, who are constantly working to improve the Terra Network, have now issued a new warning against rug draws and scams. The group claims that Lithosphere and KaJ Labs Foundation have no connection with the group.

The above statement was confirmed via tweet by reXx, one of the members of Terra Rebel today. The group also said they don’t know why the Terra Rebel group was mentioned in the roadmap published by Lithosphere and KaJ Labs.

Although Lithosphere and KaJ Labs Foundation claim to support Terra Classic P2E games and also burn 2.5 trillion LUNC tokens, Terra Rebels believe the companies are sweepstakes and scams. Rug pull is basically a scam involving cryptocurrency where a developer attracts investors to a new project and pulls out before the project is even done.

reXx also claims that these projects aren’t even built on the Terra blockchain and just use Terra Rebels and LUNC to gain community trust.

At the time of writing, Terra Classic (LUC) is changing hands at $0.000294 after rising 0.65% in the last 24 hours. The LUNC price is expected to rise following Binance’s burn announcement next Monday.
