After the development of shock compression methods for obtaining pressure-density Hugoniot curves, it became clear that these could be applied to both determining the equations-of-state and investigation of polymorphic phase changes in silicate minerals of planetary mantles and crusts, as well as, the iron alloys of the metallic cores of terrestrial planets. These data, when taken with seismological models of the Earth, yield constraints on the composition of the Earth’s mantle and core. Shock… CONTINUE READING
