What is the major heat source of earth's crust?
there are many reasons for heat in earths crust. like the friction between rock masses during movements of earths crust. there may also be heat left over from the original heat of earths interior. but the main reason for heat in earths crust is radioactive elements. they give off energy that can be absorbed as heat. some radioactive elements include uranium, thorium, and a form of potassium.
