The Moho, or Mohorovicic Discontinuity, is the boundary between the crust and the mantle.

What plate is surrounded by the Ring of Fire

Generally speaking, the Pacific plate is surrounded by the "ring of fire," an area of high seismic and volcanic activity.

What percentage of the earth's water is fresh

What is the process in which electricity is passed through salt water for the purpose of desalinating the water

The process in which electricity is passed through salt water for the purpose of desalinating the water is electrodialysis. This process accelerates diffusion.
