In a comparison of extreme drill holes to the diameter of the Earth, we see that even when reaching a depth of 14 km, geologists have barely scratched the Earth's surface. Geologists Andy Kurtz of Boston University, and Keith Klepeis of the University of Vermont, discuss temperature and pressure in the interior of the Earth and the obstacles that limit the depth to which we can drill. Featured Scientists: Keith Klepeis, Ph.D. and David Sherrod, Ph.D.
D. Structure of the Earth: Earth is layered and has a solid crust, hot, convecting mantle, and a dense metallic core.
