Core

The dense, iron-rich center of the Earth.

4

Crust

The rock that makes up the outermost layer of the Earth.

5

Earth System

The global interconnecting web of physical and biological phenomena involving the solid Earth, the hydro sphere, and the atmosphere.

6

Lithosphere

The relatively rigid, non-flowable, outer 100-to-150 km thick layer of the Earth, constituting the crust and the top part of the mantle.

7

Mantle

The thick layer of rock below the Earth's crust and above the core.

8

Sediment

An accumulation of loose mineral grains, such as boulders, pebbles, sand, silt, or mud, that are not cemented together.
