Imaging the D" Structure using Waveform Modelling

Li, Yuwei


The D" region of the Earth, the lowermost few hundred kilometres of the lower mantle, is designated as a thermal boundary layer and chemically distinct layer above the core-mantle boundary (CMB). It plays an important role in mantle convection, core convection and the resulting geodynamics. Characterising the structure of this region is crucial to a better understanding of the mantle's thermo-chemical evolution and the nature of core-mantle interactions. The top of D'' region characterises a...[Show more]
