The Earth is a beautiful world, but it wasn’t always this way. 4 billion years ago when we were still in our infancy there were times where the planet felt more like hell than paradise with temperatures at their extreme limits and oceans full of molten rock boiling away beneath its surface
Visit the hottest places on Earth and explore our molten metal core!
Spend time at Yellowstone National Park, Island of Goddardnear Lake Huron in Ontario Canada ,IGU (International General Chemical) World Congress Center Germany. All these locations have something interesting to offer when it comes down to extreme environments like those found inside an active volcano or deep within planet earth itself .
When our Earth’s Core cools down, it will become solid and then Mars-like. This could have major consequences for all of the processes that we know about today because they are based on how things work here in relation with this magnetic field protected by what looks like an electric blanket around planet earth–that is unless someone invents something really creative before then!
Earth’s interior is cooling faster than expected, and that could be a huge problem for life on Earth.
“Our results could give us a new perspective on the evolution of the Earth’s dynamics. They suggest that Earth, like the other rocky planets Mercury and Mars, is cooling and becoming inactive much faster than expected,” explains professor Motohiko Murakami at ETH Zurich and the lead author of this new study.
Scientists have found that bridgmanite, a mineral commonly found at the boundary between Earth’s core and mantle which conduct heat well enough to help us understand how quickly our world would cool down after an ice age.
The boundary layer of Earth’s mantle is where the viscous rock and hot iron-nickel melt come together to play their complex game. This isn’t always easy, but it can be seen in action as we watch our planet heat up from below!
The researchers put a lab experiment together to see how much bridgmanite from the Earth’s core would conduct heat. They created an environment that is similar in many ways, including temperature and pressure conditions for their tests on this new material.”
“This measurement system let us show that the thermal conductivity of bridgmanite is about 1.5 times higher than assumed,” says Prof Murakami.
This simply signifies higher heat flow from the core into Earth’s mantle. Meaning, it is cooling much faster than previous assumptions! But how long will this process take?
As per prof Murakami: “We still don’t know enough about these kinds of events to pin down their timing.” Nevertheless, the cooling will not be fast enough to have any impact on our immediate future on human scales.
