Nazca Plate Animation

Earth's Solid Stuff

Earth's matter system is made of three kinds of parts - solid stuff, liquid stuff and gas stuff. Scientists don't like to use words like stuff; they call these parts of the Earth matter system its geosphere (solid), hydrosphere (water) and atmosphere (gas). We begin with the geosphere, Earth's solid stuff.

The Plate Tectonics animation shows the movement of the plates that are illustrated on the bottom of page 23 of the book.
