Earth's Deep Mantle: Structure, Composition, and Evolution-An Introduction

Robert D. Van Der Hilst, Jay D. Bass, Jan Matas, Jeannot Trampert

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingForeword/postscript


Here we present the general scope of the monograph and introduce the different chapters. The chapters are organized by theme instead of scientific discipline, and most combine a review of past accomplishments with discussions of results from current research. Collectively, they document the tremendous progress in understanding achieved over the past decade or so, but they also demonstrate that many controversies and challenges remain for future collaborative studies of Earth's deep interior.
