The lithosphere is the outermost layer of a planet's crust. A cyclone, such as a tornado, can have a dramatic effect on the surface of the Earth.

The impact of an earthquake on the earth's lithosphere is quite huge. The lithosphere in most cases will be torn apart as a result of the movement of plate tectonics.

The impact of cyclones to the lithosphere is that the land and earth is being destroyed. The cyclones wreck forests, and houses.

To reduce the impact of a cyclone you could maybe build stong walls. (ask the chinese, they know a thing or two about making strong walls)

No. Cyclone Tracy affected only the far north of Australia.

Although Cyclone Tracy had strong and destructive winds, it brought surprisingly little rain with it. Therefore, there was no impact from flooding or upsetting of the crocodiles' habitat with fresh water. The impact on the saltwater crocodiles was negligible.

Cyclones can cause singificant erosion in coastal areas.

Well, it sure did make the environment windy for a while.

In this paper, we review recent worldwide literature on trends in tropical cyclone frequency, intensity, and impact, with special reference to the North Indian.

Yes, Cyclone Tracy was a tropical cyclone.

The opposite of a cyclone is an anti-cyclone.

No. Cyclone Tracy was an a very intense but abnormally small cyclone.

Cyclone Selma came before Cyclone Tracy.

There are two types of lithosphere: the oceanic lithosphere and the continental lithosphere. The oceanic lithosphere exists in the ocean basins while the continental lithosphere exists in the continental crust.

It had a lot of affect on Queensland especially after the floods It killed a lot of people and destroyed heaps of homes.

Cyclone is a cyclone because in affects in the round stage like cycle and its wheel round and round.

cyclone is a low pressure system and an anti-cyclone is a high pressure system

Because oceanic lithosphere is more dense than continental lithosphere.

The oceanic lithosphere is denser than the continental lithosphere.
