Earth's lithosphere, which is the outermost layer of Earth, is composed of several pieces called tectonic plates that are constantly shifting and colliding. Earth's hydrosphere is composed of all the water on the planet including oceans, glaciers, rivers, lakes, and groundwater. Earth's atmosphere is composed of 78% nitrogen, 21% oxygen, and 1% other gasses such as argon, carbon dioxide, water vapor, and ozone.
