  Crust (geology) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The crust of the Earth is composed mainly of basalt and granite.
The oceanic crust (sima) is 5 to 10 km thick and is composed primarily of a dark, dense rock called basalt.
Crust formation is linked to periods of intense orogeny or mountain building; these periods coincide with the formation of the supercontinents such as Rodinia, Pangaea and Gondwana.

 Oilfield Glossary: Term 'crust'
The continental crust comprises rocks similar in composition to granite and basalt (i.e., quartz, feldspar, biotite, amphibole and pyroxene) whereas the composition of oceanic crust is basaltic (pyroxene and feldspar).
The crust overlies the more dense rock of the mantle, which consists of rocks composed of minerals like pyroxene and olivine, and the iron and nickel core of the Earth.
The crust, mantle and core of the Earth are distinguished from the lithosphere and asthenosphere on the basis of their composition and not their mechanical behavior.

The thickness of the crust beneath continents is much more variable but averages about 30 km; under large mountain ranges, such as the Alps or the Sierra Nevada, however, the base of the crust can be as deep as 100 km.
Below the crust is the mantle, a dense, hot layer of semi-solid rock approximately 2,900 km thick.

 Power Crust   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
The power crust is an algorithm for 3D surface reconstruction which is based on the medial axis transform.
Given a set of sample points S from the boundary F of a three-dimensional object, it produces a mesh representing the original surface and also an approximation to the medial axis of the solid bounded by F.
When S is sufficiently dense, the power crust is guaranteed to produce a geometrically and topologically correct approximation to the surface.

 Shrub-Steppe Series: What About Cryptogamic Crust?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
These organisms form a biotic layer, or cryptogamic crust, over unvegetated areas between shrubs, grasses, and flowering plants in undisturbed arid and semi-arid lands of the world, including the shrub-steppe ecosystem of the Columbia Basin.
When large areas of the cryptogamic crust are disturbed, water and wind erode the soil.
If the original crust was composed of a complex association of species and was several centimeters deep, it could take more than 100 years for the crust to recover.

This crust is completely dry for most of the year, but when a fragment (marked by the white rectangle) was immersed in water the microbial community was reactivated and was found to have at least three components, shown in the image below:
