Geosphere

  • In Earth System Science, Geosphere refers to the solid parts of the Earth. Its second name is the Lithosphere. The geosphere is divided into three layers; crust, mantle, and core. The crust is the top layer composed entirely of light elements like silicon. The next layer of the geosphere is the mantle, it is 68% of the Earths mass. The central part of the Earth is the core, which has a radius of 3,400 km.

This photo shows how the spheres interact with each other. This picture is by http://expeditieaarde.blogspot.com/2014_07_01_archive.html and prescribed by Thomas Evans. 
This sphere affects the other spheres if the ground is contaminated then it will ruin the biosphere because it's not healthy for anything to live in those conditions.

  • The Geosphere helps the earths population be able to produce food so they can eat, be healthy and repopulate the earth so it can continue with the life circle. People affect the Geosphere by buildings, underground projects and hazardous chemical spills. When you are building a building and if the ground is polluted you have to start treating the ground, while you are treating the ground you have to put chemicals in the ground that causes the ground to be polluted and you can't grow anything there if the building is removed. Underground projects consist of Fracking.

  •  Fracking  is the process of drilling down into the earth before a high-pressure water mixture is directed at the rock to release the gas inside. Water, sand and chemicals are injected into the rock at high pressure which allows the gas to flow out to the head of the well.
