Convection currents take place in the mantle.
In the Upper Mantle, and on the Core of the Earth's surface.
The convection currents flow in the mantle.
Convection currents occur in the mantle of the earth. They can affect the crust and the life above it, though.
in the mantle due to the molten rock... hope this helps!!! =] also for better detail they happen in the asthenospheric mantle to
Convection currents in the magma drive plate tectonics. Heat generated from the radioactive decay of elements deep in the interior of the Earth creates magma (molten rock) in… the aesthenosphere.
Heat from the earth's interior causes warmer sections of the softer layer, the asthenosphere, to become buoyant and rise, displacing cooler sections of the asthenosphere, whic…h then sink. These convection currents drive the movement of the lithospheric plates that float on top of the asthenosphere.
Convection currents are found in the mantle.
They occur in the Mantle. Prettyorc345 Your welcome! I had the same problem on my science homework :)
Convection occurs towards the center of the Earth. The center is mostly made of molten iron, which is a fluid. Because convection is the transfer of heat throughout fluids, if… one area is very hot, then the iron flows around and makes other areas warmer.
Convection occurs in the inner core then goes into the upper mantle.
Convection currents is similar to convection of heat (hot air rises, cold air falls and replaces hot air etc). The movement of these convection current in the earth's core and… liquid mantle, causes the earth's crust to move...causing earthquakes etc.
Convection currents happen in the mantle and cause tectonic plates to drift.The earth is made up of the iron and nickel core, then the mantle then the crust.
