crust: Earth's thin, rocky outer skin 2 types of crust: continental crust; oceanic crust; mantle: solid, rocky shell that extends to km upper mantle; lithosphere: consists of the entire crust, and uppoermost mantle and forms Earth's cool, rigid outershell asthenosphere: below the lithosphere, zone of weak material where rock is easily deformed transition zone. The upper mantle forms part of the Earth's lithosphere, where earthquakes and volcanic activities frequently occur along plate boundaries. The upper mantle is separated from the crust by the Mohorivicic discontinuity, commonly referred to as "Moho," which derived its name from the Croatian scientist Andrija Mohorovicic.

The Seismic Structure of Island Arc Crust. per crust and upper mantle is not strongly affected by. Fig. Comparison of island arc velocity functions with. Representative 1D velocity depth functions for island arc crust were calculated by averaging the sections of the 2D arc velocity models listed in Table (but excluding the continental part of Aleutian line A3) using three difference reference datums: mean sea level, the seafloor (taken to be the km s −1 isovelocity contour), and the top of the igneous crust (Fig.

Summarized crust and upper mantle structure of the central North Island. P wave speeds are given in km s −1. Note the arched shape of the crust—mantle transition zone across the central North Island.
Mantle velocities under the western North Island are from Stern () and slab velocities from Reyners (). Approximate extent of the new Cited by: the models are consistent with the presence of a continental structure.
Two regions, located over the major geological zones of the accretionary crust of the Caribbean region, are characterized by a peculiar crust and upper mantle structure, indicating the presence of lithospheric roots reaching, at least, about km of depth. The Arabian Shield and Red Sea region is considered one of only a few places in the world undergoing active continental rifting and formation of new oceanic lithosphere.
We determined the seismic velocity structure of the crust and upper mantle beneath this Cited by: 5.

A model of the crustal and upper mantle structure in this area based on gravity, aeromagnetic, deep seismic sounding, and petrophysical data is by: The movement of large areas of seafloor in both directions away from mid-oceanic ridges.
It can be igneous or sedimentary. Changes due to temperature and high pressure in the deep crust and upper mantle.

The average density of the Earth is g/cm 3 ; whereas the average density of the continental crust is g/cm 3 a nd oceanic crust is g/cm 3.
Which statement best explains the discrepancy between the densities of the Earth's crust versus the overall average.

An ophiolite is a section of the Earth's oceanic crust and the underlying upper mantle that has been uplifted and exposed above sea level and often emplaced onto continental crustal rocks. The Greek word ὄφις, ophis (snake) is found in the name of ophiolites, because of the superficial texture of some of tinite especially evokes a snakeskin.

INTRODUCTION East central Oregon is divided into several physiographic provinces including the High Cascades, High Lava Plains, and the Basin and by: Crust and upper mantle Mantle transition zone Lower-crustal ductile ﬂows abstract A temporary seismological network of broadband three-component stations has been deployed N–S to investigate the crust and upper mantle structure across the Ordos Block and the Yinshan Mountains.
In striking contrast to the jelly sandwich model, some researchers have suggested that the strength of continental lithosphere resides entirely in the crust and that the upper mantle is significantly weaker owing to high temperature and weakening by water (Jackson ) (Figure 1b).Proponents of this model, later termed the crème brûlée model by Burov & Watts (), also infer a close Cited by: Deep Earth Structure – Upper Mantle Structure: Global Isotropic and Anisotropic Elastic Tomography Chapter December with Reads How we measure 'reads'.

In contrast, upper mantle is highly anisotropic, with velocities ranging from ∼ km/s to km/s (e.g., Hess, ), and mantle structure indicates strong age-dependent changes, probably due to elevated temperatures and the presence of partial melt characterizing lithosphere younger than ca.

These are based on the reflection and refraction of P- and S-waves. The boundary between the crust and mantle is called the MohoroviCiC discontinuity (M-discontinuity or Moho for short) after the Croatian seismologist who discov.
