We know that the earth’s interior is boiling hot. Researchers at the University of Oslo have found that heat loss from the Earth’s to the outside world is not the same everywhere. Finding that the Pacific hemisphere cools faster than Earth’s African hemisphere.
The earth’s interior is filled with boiling metals. This is what happens when lava flows out during a volcanic eruption. This boiling magma is also spinning with the earth. It is the core of the earth that holds our atmosphere close to the earth and causes gravity.
Over time, this temperature inside the earth decreases. In billions of years, the Earth will freeze and become like Mars. Researchers have now found that the rate at which heat is lost to the outside is not the same everywhere on Earth. The study created a computer model of heat coming out of the earth for 400 million years.
Due to the movement of the earth’s layers, lava and earth’s heat are constantly coming out of the ocean floor. This is what led to the formation of continents and islands over time. The distance from the Earth’s core to the outside is less than that of the oceans. This leads to heat loss to the outside through the ocean floor. The African hemisphere is dominated by landmass, such as Africa, Europe, and Asia. Researchers have found that this reduces the rate at which heat is released from the earth’s surface.
