We all live on Earth’s continental crust – and so it’s the part of our planet we are most familiar with.  But do you know what makes this type of crust so special?  In this episode, we talk about the continental crust, what it is made up from, how thick it is, and why it contains the oldest rocks on Earth.

This is essential listening for students learning about Plate Tectonics!

    Thank you! What a great explanation of crusts. I have been interested in geology since childhood and this was fascinating and wonderfully informative. The explanation of the age of rocks and percentages was mind blowing! I had not appreciated the bigger picture of earth processes.
