A lithosphere is the rigid, outermost shell of a terrestrial-type planet or natural
satellite that is ... The thickness of the lithosphere is considered to be the depth to
the isotherm associated wi...
The lithosphere extends from the surface of Earth to a depth of about 44-62 mi (
70-100 km). This relatively cool and rigid section of Earth is believed to "float" on
Lithosphere Thickness Variations. The Conrad and Lithgow-Bertelloni 
model for lithosphere thickness characterizes lateral variations in lithosphere ...
Summary. Lithospheric density and thickness variations are important
contributors to the state of stress of the plates. The relationship between the

Oceanic lithosphere is typically about 50-100 km thick (but beneath the mid-
ocean ridges is no thicker than the crust). Continental lithosphere is thicker (
The lithosphere, or the solid, outer part of Earth, is about 44 to 62 miles thick. It is
