  • [1] We have critically reviewed and discussed currently available information regarding the spin and valence states of iron in lower mantle minerals and the associated effects of the spin transitions on physical, chemical, and transport properties of the deep Earth. A high-spin to low-spin crossover of Fe2+ in ferropericlase has been observed to occur at pressure-temperature conditions corresponding to the middle part of the lower mantle. In contrast, recent studies consistently show that Fe2… CONTINUE READING
