EE-83-85-LS2.5-Explore-Modeling Earth's Structure

Research, design, and create a scale cross sectional map Earth that fits on a standard 8.5x11" piece of plain white paper. Don't try to get you map all the way to the edge of the paper . . . please limit your outermost diameter to 20cm.

On the back of your cuatway map, list the specific website ULR addresses you got your information from.

Also show your complete calculations on the back of your map your scale calculations, and put the map scale you used on the front side, bottom right corner of your paper.

Forget comparing your effort to Bennies:P

You must draw the depth / thickness to scale of (mm : Km) and lable your map with the following information for credit:

Thickness, or cord distance in Kilometers of:
1) Crust / Lithosphere
2) Asthenosphere
3) Mantle
4) Outer Core

& the radius of the:
5) Inner Core

6) Composition / materials present / chemistry for each layer

7) Highest Temperature for each layer (in degrees Celcius)

8) Greatest Density for each layer (in g/cm^3)

1) What is the power supply for plate motion?

2) Why is the hotter inner core solid and the cooler outer core liquid?

3) What is the source of Earth's magnetic field?

4) How is Earth's mag-field used by surface life?

5) How do elements in the outer core & lower mantle get transported to & combined into molecules in the upper mantle?

6) What is the most massive layer of Earth, and what is it's most massive component?

Research, design, and create a scale cross sectional map Earth that fits on a standard 8.5x11" piece of plain white paper. Don't try to get you map all the way to the edge of the paper . . . please limit your outermost diameter to 20cm.

On the back of your cuatway map, list the specific website ULR addresses you got your information from.

Also show your complete calculations on the back of your map your scale calculations, and put the map scale you used on the front side, bottom right corner of your paper.

Forget comparing your effort to Bennies:P

You must draw the depth / thickness to scale of (mm : Km) and lable your map with the following information for credit:

Thickness, or cord distance in Kilometers of:
1) Crust / Lithosphere
2) Asthenosphere
3) Mantle
4) Outer Core

& the radius of the:
5) Inner Core

6) Composition / materials present / chemistry for each layer

7) Highest Temperature for each layer (in degrees Celcius)

8) Greatest Density for each layer (in g/cm^3)

9) Function of each layer in creating and maintaining the surface environment on Earth - geo-hydro-atmo-bio-spheres.

TestPrep:
Add what you learned from the Walk Through Model Earth yesterday to your Model Earth Drawing.

Test:
Using the text &/or internet, answer the following on the back (or an attached paper with your heading on it) in explanitory &/or illustrated sentences:

1) What is the power supply for plate motion?

2) Why is the hotter inner core solid and the cooler outer core liquid?

3) What is the source of Earth's magnetic field?

4) How is Earth's mag-field used by surface life?

5) How do elements in the outer core & lower mantle get transported to & combined into molecules in the upper mantle?

6) What is the most massive layer of Earth, and what is it's most massive component?
