Continental crust below part of the oceanic crust (mostly above water line) The ocean crust Gabbro Basalt - both coarse - a few islands not continental – Hawaii, Iceland Mantle Gabbro Basalt - convection to make new ocean crust, moving continents around, and forming new mountains Core Iron Nickle -not a silicate rock, mostly alloids and metals, flows (like malasses) but very little mixing b/t it and mantle – gives magnetic field Old Supernova – forming earth 4.5 billion years ago, reminants came together to make a new star, and a new group a planets surrounding it Cloud spins, faster and faster, the sentriphical force causes it to flattenen to be flat, mat'l thrown out, gravity brings it together very closely with lost of heat.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
