By avarg, Updated
This storyboard does not have a description.
There are many layers in the Earth.
The layers of the Earth are the crust, lithosphere, mantle, asthenosphere, mesosphere, outer core, and inner core.
The lithosphere is the solid, outer layer that consists of the crust and the rigid upper part of the mantle. The asthenosphere is the soft layer of the mantle where the tectonic plates move.
The crust is the solid and thin outer layer of Earth that is above the mantle. The mantle is the layer of rock between the crust and core.
The mesosphere is the layer that extends from about 31 to 53 miles above Earth. The core is the central part of Earth's bottom mantle.
