Asked in Metamorphic Rock
What percentage of the earth's crust is metamorphic rock?
Metamorphic rocks are created from intense heat and pressure being applied to an existing rock. The existing rock is called the protolith. They can also be formed from lava being poured over the top of the earth's surface, where rocks lay underneath. Metamorphic rocks make up a large part of our earths crust. It is around 40-60% of the earts crust.

What did earts surface lok like in the preCambrian time period?
There was lava everywhere, and there were a lot of rain. It was very hot, with an extremely high amount of carbon dioxide in the air. In a way, it looked like the sun, but much smaller. The lava gradually started to cool down and turned into solid land as time ticked down toward the Cambrian period. At the beginning, there were near-boiling point hot spring that housed our ancestors, the archeobacteria (i think), which could survive the heat.
What is the world's population growth rate between year 1 to year 2007?
gooBetween year 1 (the estimated world population was 200,000+) and year 2005 (the population was 6,453,628,000 (source: Wikipedia), the average population growth rate is 0.52% yearly. Before the 18th century, the world's population was less than 1 billion and had a steady growth rate because the birth rate wasn't that much bigger than the death rate but in the 19th century it began to increase and soon exceeded 1 billion. There was a population explosion in the 20th century and now the growth is almost vertical. 1 person is added to the earts population every 3 seconds and the world's population is now well over 6 billion.

What is isostacy and how does it explain why the earts land masses are not flat?
isostacy refers to equilibrium that exist between part of the crust.in geology the term is used to refer to gravitational equilibrium between lithosphere and asthenosphere. isostacy is explained by isostacy theory that state ;=total mass of the rock in any vertical column of unit cross-section is constant. Two hypothesis are used to explain the earth,that is -principle of mass compensation by J.H Pratt in 1854 -principle of depth compensation by G.B Airy in 1855.
Asked in Science
Can a solar flare destroy your earts magnetic field?
If you mean the Earth's magnetic field then no. It could disrupt it temporarily and cause problems but as the Earth's magnetic field is thought to be generated by the molten iron core of the Earth, a solar flare wouldn't be able to permanently destroy the field. answ2. Please ignore any suggestion that the nickel - iron core of the Earth has anything to do with the Earth's magnetism. The inner core probably has a temp of around 5700 deg, (the temp of the Sun's surface!) hugely in excess of the Curie Point of iron! The earths magnetic field is generated by electrical currents in the magma, running roughly parallel to the equator. There may be several such currents, and we see the net effect. The solar wind ordinarily contributes a few % of the magnetic field. But in a solar storm, could easily reverse it for a period. Hopefully to revert to that of magmatic origin. Solar storms have in the past destroyed power grids, and telephone systems. GPS would be unreliable during a major event.
Asked in Plate Tectonics
What are facts about Earth's mantle?
The mantle can be subdivided into the upper and lower mantle. The uppermost part of the upper mantle is part of the lithosphere, and is sold and rigid. The lower part of the upper mantle is partially molten, and hence can flow. The lower mantle is solid, but behaves in a plastic fashion, much like blu-tack. The mantle is predominantly composed of an ultramafic rock called peridotite. Further Detail: The Earth's mantle is the largest layer of the Earth by volume accounting for around 84% of the Earth. It is approximately 2885 kilometers thick. The Earth's mantle is composed of rocks that have higher concentrations of mafic minerals (containing iron and magnesium) and lower in concentrations of the felsic minerals (aluminum and silica) than the rocks of Earth's crust. The concentrations of the above elements therefore mean that the Earth's mantle is composed of a series of minerals that are predominately calcium / iron / magnesium aluminum silicates. Such as: Olivine - (Mg,Fe)2SiO4 Pyroxene - X(Si,Al)2O6, where X represents either calcium, sodium, iron or magnesium Spinel - MgAl2O4 Garnet - X3Y2(SiO4)3 where X and Y can be a mixture of aluminum, iron, calcium, manganese or magnesium. At depths shallower than approximately 460 km, these minerals form the rocks types Peridotite, Dunite (Olivine-rich Peridotite), and Eclogite. At depths greater than 410 km Olivine becomes unstable and is replaced by a number of different mineral forms known as poly-morphs which are stable at higher pressures. These include Wadsleyite which forms at depths between 410 and 520 km and Ringwoodite which forms between 520 and 600 km deep. These depths are based on a number of seismic dicontinuities at the depths of 410 km (thought to mark the transition from Olivine to Wadsleyite) and at 520 km (thought to mark the transition from Wadsleyite to Ringwoodite) respectively. At depths greater than around 650 km these upper mantle minerals start to become unstable due to the increased pressure and the minerals below this take the structure of the minerals Perovskite and Ferropericlase although with differing chemical compositions and it is this seismic discontinuity at 650 km depth that marks the transition to the lower mantle. Its heat comes from left over radiation from the Earth's creation. It is more denser than the crust. not It contains more iron than silica. It is 1800 miles thick and makes up more than two thirds of earts mass

Do all people have a longing for God?
One Opinion Well, yes. Not all people know it, but they do. This is really based on a belief. Another Opinion No. Many people are not interested in God. Most are, however. The people who present these opinions show NO EVIDENCE!!!! He who asserts MUST PROVE! Stance #1: No, not all people have a longing for God. I will present evidence for both opinions and tell you which one is most likely to be true. 1st Opinion--Well, yes. Not all people know it, but they do. Romans 1:18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness This verse clearly states that we-the wicked men-are suppressing truth by being wicked. Although Jeremiah 17:9 says that our heart are extremely wicked and deceitful, Rom. 1:18 very clearly implies that the truth is that we are not wicked. this argument kind of says that man is basically good. no comment. 2nd Opinion--No. Many people are not intrested in God. Ecclesiastes 9:3b The hearts of men, moreover, are full of evil and there is madness in their earts while they live, and afterward, they join the dead. Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked, for who can know it. This sounds kind of harsh, but it's true, the Bible says it. If the hearts of men are filled with yuck and deceitfulness, how could our basic nature be good? How could all men have a longing for God? I wish I had enough time to elaborate more on these opinions, but I don't, so I will write more later on something else _______________________________________________________________ Stance #2: Yes, all people have a longing for God. I disagree with the answer given above. Romans 1:18 is not implying that all men are basically good. Romans 1:18, with verses 19-21 for context, is below: "For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened." (Romans 1:18-21) The verse is not saying that the men are suppressing the truth by being unrighteous, but that they suppress the truth by their unrighteousness, or because they are unrighteous. Verse 21 clearly shows this: "For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God...." Because men are unrighteous, they try to convince themselves and others that God does not exist. However, deep down inside they know God exists. So there really aren't two separate views presented hear; the verse is being misinterpreted. The Bible clearly teaches that man is unrighteous. However, the Bible also teaches that all men long for God. Ecclesiastes 3:11 says, "He [God] has put eternity into man's heart." We can also see that all men long for God when we look at the world around us. All people have a God-shaped hole in their hearts. They try to fill it with worldly pleasures, but we all can see that worldly pleasures aren't enough. People try to dull their sense of loneliness with alcohol, drugs, or sex, but the only thing that can fill the hole is God. So yes, all people do have a longing for God.
