What Happens Underground During an Earthquake?

What Happens Underground During an Earthquake? | hooooooolaaa | Scoop.it
Earthquakes result from the sudden shaking of the Earth, which is produced by the constant movement of tectonic plates in the Earth's crust. Most earthquakes occur along oceanic and continental plate limits.

Commission: Earth Structural Layer Cake | CakeCrumbs.me

Commission: Earth Structural Layer Cake | CakeCrumbs.me | hooooooolaaa | Scoop.it

A little while ago, my sister approached me with an idea. She's doing an education degree, and her and her friends had to give a series of lessons on the geological sciences to a class of primary school kids. One of their lessons involved teaching the kids about the structure of the Earth. One of her friends came up with the idea of presenting a model of the Earth made out of cake. So my sister asked me if I could make a spherical cake with all the layers of the Earth inside it.

 

I told her I couldn't do it. "How do you get a sphere inside a sphere inside a sphere?" I recall saying. "Oh yeah," she replied, realising what it would involve.

 

I spent the rest of the afternoon thinking about it. I don't admit defeat. Ever. But especially not with cake. Nothing is impossible is pretty much my baking motto, so to say this cake was impossible left me feeling weird. There had to be a way. A way that didn't involve carving or crumbing the cake. I kept mulling it over until I had a breakthrough.

 

 

There was a better way of doing this that I came up with, but I needed a set of hemisphere tins to pull it off. I didn't have the equipment, nor the funds to purchase it, so I had to come up with a plan B. Somehow I went from "it's impossible" to having multiple ideas. Go figure.

 

Plan B involved baking a cake inside a cake inside a cake. And crossing all fingers and toes and hoping it worked.

Courtney Burns's curator insight, December 7, 2013 7:58 PM

I think that this came out awesome! I definetly don't think that I would be able to pull something like this off. However what I found intersting about this was that it was like a cake map. Students were able to get a visual about what the earth's core is like. It visually shows them all the different layers of the earth. Just by visually seeing the cake like this will help a lot more kids to remember this lesson. Also by the baker putting the countries in their accurate locations makes this cake even that much better. They are veiwing a map and they don't even know it. I think this cake is a great tool to use to show students just how the earth is actually made up. By allowing the students to visually see it also makes it more likely for them to remember the material. Viewing maps can teach so much, which is why I think this "cake map" is an awesome way to teach and get the kids attention!

Plate tectonics may control reversals in the Earth's magnetic field

Plate tectonics may control reversals in the Earth's magnetic field | hooooooolaaa | Scoop.it

The Earth's magnetic field has reversed many times at an irregular rate throughout its history. Long periods without reversal have been interspersed with eras of frequent reversals. What is the reason for these reversals and their irregularity? Researchers from CNRS and the Institut de Physique du Globe, France, have shed new light on the issue by demonstrating that, over the last 300 million years, reversal frequency has depended on the distribution of tectonic plates on the surface of the globe. This result does not imply that terrestrial plates themselves trigger the switch over of the magnetic field. Instead, it establishes that although the reversal phenomenon takes place, in fine, within the Earth's liquid core, it is nevertheless sensitive to what happens outside the core and more specifically in the Earth's mantle. This work is published on 16 October 2011 in Geophysical Research Letters.
