It is where all of the business of "life" occurs.


The lithosphere is the rocky outer part of the Earth. It is made up of the brittle crust and the top part of the upper mantle. The lithosphere is the coolest and most rigid part of the Earth.

It is the lithosphere that gives us geography, oceans, weather and the substrate for organic life. It is the source of all accessible mineral resources for human use.
