Discovering the connection between processes observed to occur at the surface of the Earth and its internal dynamics remains an essential goal in the Earth sciences. Deep mantle structure, as inferred from seismic tomography or subduction history, has been shown to account well for the observed surface gravity fieldand motions of tectonic plates. But the origin of certain large-scale features, such as the anomalous elevation of the southern and eastern African plateaux, has remained… Expand
