Where is the top of the asthenosphere is closest to earth's surface ________?

Answers

Answer 1
Answer: The top of the asthenosphere is closest to the earth's surface underneath OCEANIC CRUST. The asthenosphere is the area of the mantle beneath the lithosphere that is solid, but hotter than the rock above it. This layer can low under pressure and function as a soft , weak zone over which the lithosphere may move. 

of the two types of crust, continental and oceanic; the latter is the thinnest. oceanic crust can be as little as 5km thick while continental crust can be up to 90km thick at the mountain ranges.

Climate change. What is climate change/global warming?
How are the greenhouse effect and climate change/global warming linked?
What is the runaway greenhouse effect, where does it occur, and could it be an issue for the Earth?

Answers

1. The climate, or global warming is basically the process of changes in the climate on Earth. The climate has constantly been changing throughout the past of our planet, and it continues to do so. There have been periods of cooling, and periods of warming, often causing dramatic changes on the planet.

The current climate change has caused lot of panic and attention, with the main reason being that the human activity has been having influence on it. While this is true, the human influence has often been exaggerated, as it is still only a small fraction of what the nature manages to do. That doesn't mean though that precaution measures don't need to be taken, on the contrary, something has to be done so that the human activity doesn't become too big of a factor in it.

2. The greenhouse effect is a natural effect caused by the gasses in Earth's atmosphere. The gasses like carbon dioxide and methane have the property to trap the heat into the Earth's atmosphere, and as they do, they manage to increase the global temperatures. The more of these gasses there are in the atmosphere, the warmer it gets, so the end result is a warm and wet planet, kind of like a greenhouse.

The global warming is directly caused by the greenhouse gasses. As mentioned, when the concentrations of these gasses in the atmosphere rise, there is more heat trapped in the atmosphere. The more heat there is in the atmosphere, the more heat the surface of Earth will experience, with the temperatures being on the rise all over the planet.

3. The runaway greenhouse effect is a situation where the atmosphere is so saturated with greenhouse gasses that it is no longer able to radiate heat out of it and into space. That causes constant warming up of the planet and drying out of all the water bodies, making it a dry planet.

This process would happen in the atmosphere, more specifically in the second layer, the stratosphere, where the accumulation of the greenhouses will happen. Also, the water vapor will be going up to this layer and managing to escape the atmosphere through hydrodynamic escape.

The Earth doesn't seem to be anywhere near a situation like this, and it hadn't come in such a situation even when the greenhouse gasses concentration was much higher than what it is nowadays. If something like that happens though, than the Earth and every living organism on it will be in huge trouble. The temperatures will rise so much that most organisms will not be able to sustain them. On top of it, the water will be escaping the planet, and eventually there will be none left, so the living organisms will be left without the basic thing that enables life. This scenario will cause the biggest mass extinction on Earth, and very likely put end to the life on it.

what is an acceptable reason for a new federal bureaucratic organization to be created as an independent executive agency?​

Answers

I found the options:

A. Congress would like to hide its activities from the public

B. The president want to control it more directly

C. It deals exclusively with foreign policy issues

D. Its tasks do not fit into any executive department

D. Its tasks do not fit into any executive department

Explanation:

The acceptable reason for a new federal bureaucratic organization to be created as an independent executive agency is if its tasks do not fit into any executive department. Sometimes in governance there are agencies whose functions might not be easily defined as they overlap with other arms of the government, it is best to create a separate bureaucratic space for them.

  • The usual arm of government is the executive, legislative and the Judiciary.
  • The executive enforces laws and governs a state.
  • The legislative are the law makers.
  • The Judiciary interprets the law.
  • If an organization's role does not fit into these roles or it cuts across them, an independent executive agency can be instituted.
