A lithosphere is the rigid, outermost shell of a terrestrial-type planet or natural
satellite that is ... The temperature at which olivine begins to deform viscously (~
1000 °C) is often used to...
Plate tectonic theory teaches that the Earth is divided into layers called crust,
mantle and core, with continents and ocean basins made of different kinds of
