Geothermal Energy By Andrew A. Edited by Cameron N. February 17 Block 1.2
What is Geothermal? Four thousand miles beneath the earths surface, is double layered! Under that, is MAGMA!! The Crust, Mantle, Outer core and Inner core, all have Geothermal energy!! The crust is divided into plates, when they collide it forms VOLCANOES!! Which gives out Geothermal Energy. http://www.greenwichschools.org/u ploaded/virtual_library/IB_Resource s/volcanodiagram.gif
Renewable or not? It is a renewable energy source, because the water is restored by rainfall, and the heat keeps going beneath the earths surface! We will NEVER run out!!
Where is it? The Earth’s core!! I know it is amazing! 4,000 miles beneath the Earth’s surface you would find MAGMA! It is mostly in the North, in Iceland and in the west, such as California, Nevada, Hawaii, Alaska, and Utah!
Advantages and disadvantages! Advantages: They don’t have to transport fuel, they don’t burn fuel to generate electricity! Disadvantages: It’s not everywhere!! We can’t take it all at one time. http://jersey.uoregon.e du/~probs/eandm/light. jpg
Is it bad for nature? Yes, but it does very little damage to nature. It does not require any fossil fuel, And it doesn’t need too be burned for the energy to work! http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2507/ 4139627167_dfd68846fe.jpg http://www.epa.gov/region5/sit es/eqfire/images/sites_1785_f iles_tank%20fire.jpg
Fun Facts There are power plants all over the world using geothermal energy. The geothermal energy source is not used for many things… its main use is electricity. HOPE YOU ENJOYED IT!
