the Mohorovicic discontinuity separates the Crust from the Mantle.


The study of earth quake waves show a marked change at the boundary between the crust and the mantle. The crust is mainly solid rock of different types. The mantle is more liquid. The waves move differently between the two types of material.

The difference between the two types of the earth create the Mohorovicic discontinuity.
