  2. Chapter 6 Our Living Earth Astro1010-lee.com Survey of Astronomy twlee2016@gmail.com

  3. Chapter 6 The interior of the Earth has been determined by studying the transmittal and reflection of Seismic Waves within the Earth. Astro1010-lee.com Survey of Astronomy twlee2016@gmail.com

  4. Chapter 6 Seismic waves are sound waves generated by earthquakes. They are compression waves and sinesoidal waves. They reflect from and transmit through layer interfaces with the Earth. Astro1010-lee.com Survey of Astronomy twlee2016@gmail.com

  5. Chapter 6 The Earth has a solid iron inner core, a liquid iron outer core, a liquid rocky mantle and a solid rocky crust Astro1010-lee.com Survey of Astronomy twlee2016@gmail.com

  6. Chapter 6 Can use the pattern of reflections made during earthquakes to deduce interior structure of Earth Astro1010-lee.com Survey of Astronomy twlee2016@gmail.com

  8. Chapter 6 The crust of the Earth is divided into several plates that move with respect to each other. The movement is driven by convection currents in the mantle. Plate movement results in earthquakes and volcanism. Astro1010-lee.com Survey of Astronomy twlee2016@gmail.com

  9. Chapter 6 Interactions between the plates are: transform, sliding against each other; divergence, separating; convergence, coming together. Astro1010-lee.com Survey of Astronomy twlee2016@gmail.com

  10. Chapter 6 When plates slide against each other cracks (faults) occur and earthquakes happen. Astro1010-lee.com Survey of Astronomy twlee2016@gmail.com

  11. Chapter 6 The twisting Pacific plate has produced many earthquake zones and many active volcanoes. Astro1010-lee.com Survey of Astronomy twlee2016@gmail.com

  12. Chapter 6 At divergent boundaries new crust is made. Astro1010-lee.com Survey of Astronomy twlee2016@gmail.com

  13. Chapter 6 At convergent boundaries crust is lost by subduction (sliding under) and crumpling (mountain building) Astro1010-lee.com Survey of Astronomy twlee2016@gmail.com

  14. Chapter 6 The Earth’s magnetic field appears to be generated by electric currents circulating the liquid iron core. Astro1010-lee.com Survey of Astronomy twlee2016@gmail.com

  15. Chapter 6 The Magnetic Field deflects the Solar Wind around the Earth much like a stone in a stream deflects water. Charged particles that penetrate the boundary are trapped in the Van Allen Belts Astro1010-lee.com Survey of Astronomy twlee2016@gmail.com

  16. Chapter 6 The trapped hot charged particles in the Van Allan belts are shunted toward the magnetic poles where they interact with the air molecules. The particles are cooled by the air which glows as auroras. Astro1010-lee.com Survey of Astronomy twlee2016@gmail.com

  17. Chapter 6 The Earth’s Biosphere, Oceans and Atmosphere, come from hydrogen rich gasses trapped inside the Earth during creation. By far the most abundant of the trapped gasses are methane, ammonia, and water. The Earth is the only planet where conditions are right for liquid water to exist on the surface.

  19. Chapter 6 The Atmosphere • Troposphere is where convection takes place – responsible for weather • The blue curve shows the temperature at each altitude Astro1010-lee.com Survey of Astronomy twlee2016@gmail.com

  20. Chapter 6 Convection depends on warming of ground by the Sun Astro1010-lee.com Survey of Astronomy twlee2016@gmail.com

  21. Chapter 6 Ionosphere is ionized by solar radiation, and is good conductor Reflects radio waves in the AM range, but is transparent to FM and TV Ozone layer is between ionosphere and mesosphere; absorbs ultraviolet radiation Astro1010-lee.com Survey of Astronomy twlee2016@gmail.com
