How the Lithosphere is affected
Earthquakes, Volcanoes, and Mountain Building
An earthquake is the result of a sudden release of energy in the crust that creates seismic waves.
A mountain or hill, typically conical, having a crater or vent through which lava, rock fragments, hot vapor, and gas are being or have been erupted from the earth's crust.
These processes are associated with large-scale movements of the earth's crust (plate tectonics). Folding, faulting, volcanic activity, igneous intrusion and metamorphism are all parts of the orogenic process of mountain building.
How they relate
Sometimes earthquakes do trigger volcanic explosions, which is when magma is forced to the surface and becomes lava. When tectonic plates meet and one is pushed under the other, it triggers magma to rise and explode out of the surface. Volcanoes also do help the lithosphere because of the materials that appear during the eruption is good for the soil.
The Lithosphere plays a big part in mountain building. The Lithosphere is made up of tectonic plates and when two plates collide, it starts to create a mountain. The Himalayas are a good example. They formed when the Indian and the Eurasian plate collided.
How it relates to other topics I've learned
Weathering and Erosion relates to the Lithosphere because it can be cause of it. Weathering can occur inside the Earth, and it can happen on the surface, Rocks can be broken down and torn apart inside the Earth. Erosion can occur because when rocks are broken down into pieces and will later packed together.
The Rock Cycle is also possible because of the Lithosphere. Some rocks that are made are caused by volcanic explosions and the moving of plates. Igneous rock is caused by hear which is generated in volcanoes. During the cycle, rocks do move and some move from inside the Earth to on the surface.
