Water weakening Earth’s plates

My “water project” keeps on expanding. I had planned to set the global climate system and the oceans as the largest scales where water affects other objects (as being part of the hydrological cycle). Looks like I now need to include a vertical subsurface affect as well. A new study suggests “that water on the surface may also help Earth balance its thermal budget, — by slightly weakening the Earth’s rocky plates and making them more readily churned and recycled in a vigorous, sustainable convective stew.”

  1. Interesting….. I was thinking of a bio-expanding H2O lube to fill and cushion, as well as, utilizing Earth Energy.
