chillymanjaro commented on The Watchers: The oceanic crust of the sheet is different from its continental crust. The oceanic crust is 5 km (3 mi) to 10 km (6 mi) thick and is composed primarily of basalt, diabase, and gabbro. The continental crust is typically from 30 km (20 mi) to 50 km (30 mi) thick, and is mostly composed of slightly less dense rocks than those of the oceanic crust.

s. korlowsky commented on The Watchers: Have you all noticed that, or at least MOST of the recent strong earthquakes happened at or around the same depth 10 Kmts. (6.2 Miles) ? hmmm... interesting! maybe 10 kmts. is the thickness of the earthcrust.
