The Importance of Earth’s Interior Heat Engine The Core
Direct experience with Earth’s heat occurs for those who live near volcanoes, hot springs and plate boundaries as they will experience volcanic eruptions, geothermal heating and earthquakes.
Earth’s Magnetic Field The movement of the liquid outer core produces our Magnetic Field which helps to protect the Earth from harmful particles and radiation from the Sun.
Convection Currents The source of heat in our core is Radioactive Decay of elements. This in turn heats up magma in the asthenosphere creating convection currents.
Convection Currents move the plates of the Earth’s crust causing the formation of: 1) Mountain Ranges
2) Deep Ocean Trenches
3) Volcanic Eruptions
Energy in the Geosphere Learning Goals: 1.Understand that there are 3 plate boundaries and that specific geological events occur at each boundary. 2.Understand.
Plate Tectonics. The Earth's surface is made up of a series of large plates (like pieces of a giant jigsaw puzzle). These plates are in constant motion.

Plate Tectonics 6.E.2.2 Explain how crustal plates and ocean basins are formed, move and interact using earthquakes, heat flow and volcanoes to reflect.
