Earth’s structure.

The structure of the Earth can be determined in two ways, chemically and mechanically. Mechanically or rheologically means the study of the liquid states, which can be further categorized into the lithosphere, asthenosphere, mesosphere, mantle, and core. However, chemically speaking, the earth can be categorized into the crust, the mantle (which can be classified into the upper and lower regions), and the core (which can also be subcategorized into the outer core, and the inner core).
