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.
Mantle plumes from the edges of stable areas with low seismic shear velocity above the core-mantle boundary can explain the surface distribution of most hotspots, LIPs, and kimberlites [50].
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. Seismic P waves travel through enormous slabs of rock in a domino effect, the way each metal link pushes the next in an extended, shaken Slinky.
Both meteorites are pallasites, which come from the core-mantle boundary of a once-molten asteroid.
Ultimately, ambient seismic noise might not only help researchers scan the mantle transition zone-where the upper and lower layers meet-but also probe all the way down to the core-mantle boundary.
4.12) and few geophysicists would claim that subduction extends directly to the core-mantle boundary (Fig.
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.C.).
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. Located some 2,000 miles beneath the planet's surface, the 180-mile-thick, furnace-like bed of rock is the interface between the Earth's liquid core and the mantle's hard rock.
His team squeezes rocks in hydraulic presses that can simulate conditions about 250 miles below Earth's surface or at the core-mantle boundary of smaller planets like Mercury.
