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
The Conrad and Lithgow-Bertelloni  model for lithosphere thickness
characterizes lateral variations in lithosphere thickness across the surface of 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 is composed of the crust, and some of the upper mantle. ... km
thick, and includes continental crust which varies from 5 to 70 km in thickness.
The lithosphere is the outer solid part of the earth, including the crust and
uppermost mantle. The lithosphere is about 100 km thick, although its thickness
is age ...
The lithosphere is a layer extremely thin compared to the rest of the planet that
has a depth of 6,371 km., Representing 1.56% of the radius of the Earth.
The thickness of the lithosphere varies; it's thickest below the continents and
thinnest at the mid-ocean ridges, raised areas of the seafloor where new seafloor
