  • Ancient cratons are typically characterized by thick lithosphericmantle roots that provide them with buoyancy and rigidity. Once formed, cratons, including their roots, move around Earth’s surface as parts of rigid plates that are normally unaffected by later magmatism or tectonic activity. Considerable geophysical and geochemical evidence, however, suggests that the ancient lithospheric mantle beneath the Chinese portion of the eastern Sino-Korean craton was replaced by thinner, hotter… CONTINUE READING
