Continental heat flow is mostly produced by what?


Question asked by: knowitall

This is caused by the magma - the moten rock - that is underneath each of the plates of the earth and causes them to move and flow along.

This is the major cause of this phenomenon to the best of our current geological understanding.

Hope this helps with your homework question!
