The Redox History of the Earth's Mantle: Evidence from Ultramafic Lavas
In order to determine the evolution of the redox state of the mantle, the oxygen fugacities of sixteen mantle-derived komatiitic and picritic systems, ranging in age from 3.55 Ga to present day, were determined using the ...
STRUCTURE OF CONTINENTAL LITHOSPHERE FROM TRANSDIMENSIONAL BAYESIAN INVERSION OF SURFACE WAVES AND RECEIVER FUNCTIONS
Continental crust and the underlying lithospheric mantle make up the continental lithosphere of the Earth. Our understanding of its structure and composition is limited by the inaccessibility of Earth’s deep interior. ...
Lower rotational inertia and larger leg muscles indicate more rapid turns in tyrannosaurids than in other large theropods
Synopsis Tyrannosaurid dinosaurs had large preserved leg muscle attachments and low rotational inertia relative to their body mass, indicating that they could turn more quickly than other large theropods. Methods To ...
