Gabriel D. Mulibo and Andrew A. Nyblade Mantle transition zone thinning beneath eastern Africa: Evidence for a whole-mantle superplume structure Geophysical Research Letters 40

Version of Record online: 19 JUL 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/grl.50694

Key Points

  • Mantle transition zone is ~30-40 km thinner than the global average
  • Anomaly of ~190-300 K beneath eastern Africa extends through the transition zone
  • The thinned TZT show that the superplume anomaly is a whole mantle structure
