Abstract This paper applies electromagnetic sounding methods for Earth's mantle to constrain its thermal state, chemical composition, and “water” content. We consider long-period inductive response functions in the form of C -responses from four stations distributed across the Earth (Europe, North America, Asia and Australia) covering a period range from 3.9 to 95.2 days and sensitivity to ~ 1200 km depth. We invert C -responses directly for thermo-chemical state using a self-consistent… CONTINUE READING
