How thick is earths crust?

The continental crust, (where all the land is) is generally around 30 km (20 mi) to 50 km (30 mi) thick. The oceanic crust (the bottom of the sea) is roughly 5 km (3 mi) to 10 km (6 mi) thick.


How thick is the earths continental crust?

The continental crust is about 25 to 70 kilometers thick. The average is about 50 kilometers.


The average thickness of the crust is?

Oceanic crust is typically 6-10 km thick. Continental crust is typically 35-40 km thick, but can be a lot thicker below mountains. High mountains also have deep roots that enable them to "float" higher on the Asthenosphere. The crust there can be up to about 70 km thick or more. Note that not all crust covered by the sea is oceanic crust. Some continental shelves extend beyond the part of the continent that is above water. For example between Australia and Papua New Guinea and between Malaysia / Cambodia / Indonesia. The satellite view of Maps.google.com clearly shows how the continental shelf is extended beyond the landmass.


How thick is the Earth's lithosphere?

The lithosphere includes the Earth's crust and uppermost mantle. Oceanic lithosphere is typically about 50-100 km thick, while continental lithosphere has a range in thickness from about 40 km to perhaps 200 km.
