The Outer Core
The Outer Core is the second to last layer of the Earth. It is a magma like liquid layer that surrounds the Inner Core and creates Earth's magnetic field. In this section you will learn about how Earth's magnetic field is created, how hot it is, how thick the Outer Core is and a few interesting facts about the Outer Core.
The Outer Core is about 4000-5000 degrees Celsius. The Inner Core is so hot it causes all the metal in the Outer Core to melt into liquid magma.
The Outer Core is composed of iron and some nickel. There is very few rocks and iron and nickel ore left in the Outer Core because of the Inner Core melting all the metal into liquid magma
The Outer Core is about 2200 km thick. It is the second largest layer and made entirely out of liquid magma.
Because the outer core moves around the inner core, Earth's magnetism is created.
