In the 20th century, researchers realized that the Earth's crust is not one piece, but is made up of many huge tectonic plates upon which the continents ride.

For the Earth, the interior is dominated by fission-driven effects, while the surface sees interactions of all 3. Core: Metal- Solid Crystalline(inner core), Liquid(outer core) Mantle: Rocky but denser & more compact rock than any found on the surface. Lithosphere: Also rocky(crust)

Contact Metamorphism Vs. Regional Metamorphism | Geology IN

Contact Metamorphism: note how new higher temperature minerals appear moving toward the pluton in the shaleous protoliths, whereas in the monomineralic rocks you have only recrystallization.
