In a process known as subduction, which occurs where crustal plates collide, slabs of cold oceanic crust sink all the way down to the core-mantle boundary, making it easy for heat to escape the core through the lower mantle.
They are usually considered to be the product of mantle plumes generated at depth, possibly near the core-mantle boundary (Campbell et al.
To produce his map, Wysession analyzed eight years of earthquake data, focusing on digital diffracted P waves, which, of all seismic waves, spend most of their time and energy traveling around the core-mantle boundary.
What material can be stored at the core-mantle boundary and become sufficiently light to rise through 2900 km of thick solid mantle?
Vibrations spreading from large earthquakes slow significantly as they pass through some patches of rock just above that core-mantle boundary, says Ho-kwang Mao, a geophysicist at the Carnegie Institution of Washington (D.
Hawaii is thought to be the surface expression of a buoyant plume of hot rock in the upper mantle, possibly originating at the core-mantle boundary at a depth of about 2,900 kilometers (1,800 miles).
Unlike old soldiers, they don't fade away--they just tumble to the Earth's core-mantle boundary.
Second, the offset suggests that the dynamo originates not in the planet's heart but from somewhere higher up, near its core-mantle boundary.
The scientists conclude that large vertical movements must have occurred early in the history of the Moon, during which titanium-rich rocks descended from near the surface all the way to the core-mantle boundary.
Most scientists speculate that below that core-mantle boundary, where pressures are even higher, there's no silica.
When seismic tomography showed subducted oceanic lithosphere penetrating the lower mantle, and plumes rising from the core-mantle boundary, an isolated lower mantle seemed impossible (Van Keken et al.
The surface is the top of the mantle (the Mohorovicic discontinuity, see page 63), and the bottom is the core-mantle boundary (CMB).
