Earth's mantle is, to a very good first approximation, spherically symmetric, with lateral deviations in seismic velocities and density of only a few per cent. This observation has led to the common assumption that average radial seismic models reflect the mantle's average physical structure. We test this assumption by using a set of dynamically generated mantle structures and comparing seismic velocities for the average radial physical state with laterally averaged seismic velocities.
