    • Anthrosphere - that part of the environment that is made or modified by humans for use in human activities; includes man/biosphere
  • Geosphere - all of the cold, hard, solid rock of the planet's crust (surface),
    the hot semi-solid rock that lies underneath the crust, the
    hot liquid rock[outer core] near the center of the planet, and the solid iron
    core (center) of the planet
  • Hydrosphere - all of the planet's solid [glaciers, ice caps], liquid, and gaseous water
    • Cryosphere - the frozen or solid water part of Earth
  • Atmosphere - all of the planet's air
  • Event - changes that take place within a sphere or system they can occur naturally,
    or can be caused by humans
  • Interaction - cause and effect relationshisp between an event and
    a system/sphere or a system/sphere and anothersystem/sphere

Practice this vocabulary with this QUIZLET .

Review the Geosphere & Biosphere with this short video, then review Hydrosphere and Atmosphere with this one.

 

Be able to:

  • Describe interactions in systems
    • Given a particular event, describe possible interactions between the event
      and systems and systems and systems. Here's a good video to review this.
