Dublin Schools - Lesson : Heat Energy in the Mantle Drives Convection

All the heat from “melting Earth” now drives the convection currents that are responsible for geological processes today. You will learn about the theory of plate tectonics in another lesson, however, it is important for you to understand how convection currents operate in the mantle. The activity below will focus on convection in the mantle.

Convection currents flow in the mantle. The heat source is the Earth’s core and the mantle itself. These currents have been acting like a conveyor belt moving the lithosphere above for the past four billion years. The result of the plates moving are earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and the creation of mountains.

Convection currents, that occur within the molten rock in the mantle, act like a conveyor belt for the plates. The friction between the convection current and the crust causes the tectonic plate to move. The liquid rock then sinks back towards the core as it cools. The process then repeats. Also Know, how do convection currents move plates?

Heat Transfer - Convection – transfer of heat by the movement of a heated fluid (includes liquids and gases); Heat transfer is caused by differences in temperature and density within a fluid (Ex: Water on a stove – water heats at the bottom of the pan, becomes less dense and rises; away from the heat source the water cools, becomes more dense and sinks; the process begins …

Convection Currents - What are Convection Currents?

It is this function of heat transfer of convection currents that helps to drive the Earth’s ocean currents, its atmospheric weather, and the overall geology. Basically, the convection currents present in the mantle of the Earth are said to be the driving force of the tectonic plates.

Mantle convection and plate tectonics provide a general framework for understanding tectonophysics. Transport of heat from the interior of the earth drives solid-state convection. Plate tectonics is a direct consequence of this convection. The relative velocity between plates causes crustal deformation at the boundaries between plates.

Mantle convection Introduction and History All planetary bodies retain some heat from their early formation but are inexorably cooling to space. Planetary surfaces are therefore cold relative to their hotter interiors, and thus un-dergo thermal convection wherein cold material is dense and sinks while hot material is light and rises (liquid ...

Mar 19, 2017 Tectonic plates at the earth's surface move because of the intense heat in the Earth's core. this heat causes molten rock in the mantle layer to move. It moves in a pattern called a convection cell and producing a movement called mantle convection which is the slow creeping motion of Earth's solid silicate.

May 29, 2020 In Earth's mantle, large amounts of heat are transferred by convection currents, as shown in Figure 10. Heat from the core and the mantle itself causes convection currents in the mantle. The hot rock eventually cools and sinks back through the mantle. Over and over, the cycle of rising and sinking takes place. Click to see full answer.

Plate Tectonics. Section 2: Convection in the Mantle. To explain how heat moves from the Earth’s core through the mantle, you need to know how heat is transferred. There are three types of heat transfer. Radiation refers to the transfer of energy through empty space. There is no direct contact between the heat source and an object.

The energy reaching the surface of the Earth from within can be measured to get heat flux, q. q = - k dT/dz. Units of heat flux = Wm-2 which is equivalent to Js-1m-2, and k is the thermal conductivity (Wm-1K-1). The average heat flow from the Earth gives a q of approximately 0.08Wm-2 (equivalent to 80mWm-2).
