Earth’s Systems

1.The Lithosphere

Earth Science

Some of Earth’s upper mantle behaves like a rigid solid while other parts of this layer are partially molten and flow like a soft plastic.

Beneath Earth’s mantle is the core, which can be divided into two parts: an outer, liquid part and a solid, inner part.  

Earth’s core and asthenosphere are not parts of the lithosphere but they do interact with it.

This partially molten layer of the mantle is the asthenosphere.
