New Research Reveals a Mysterious Pocket of Rock Inside Earth
The mysterious rock formation that lies almost immediately beneath the Hawaiian
inside of the Earth is layered like an onion, with the iron-nickel core at the center
Scientists used earthquake seismic waves to view beneath the surface of the Earth, with the waves’
The scientists employed cutting-edge numerical modeling techniques to uncover kilometer-scale structures at the core-mantle boundary.
They discovered a 40 percent reduction in the speed of seismic waves traveling beneath
The new findings may also assist scientists in comprehending what lies beneath and gives rise to volcanic systems
The researchers can now collect rare physical evidence from what is presumably the root of the plume feeding
