How to use "Earth's crust" in context?
The earth's crust is the outermost solid layer of the planet Earth. It is about 1,800 kilometers thick and is divided into several dozen different crustal provinces. The crust is thin over the mantle and thickens as one approaches the core. The crust is made of rocks, and is broken into small pieces by the forces of earthquakes and volcanoes. The crust rigidifies the lithosphere, and influences the geology, dynamics and temperature of the Earth's mantle and core.
