Abstract The Earth's thermal evolution is controlled by the amount of heat released by the radioactive decay of 40 K, 238 U, 235 U and 232 Th. Their crust and upper mantle content is inferred from direct sampling, whereas estimating the lower mantle concentrations requires indirect constraints, such as those brought by primitive chondrites, or by geoneutrinos. Here we follow the framework of “E-Earth” models, based on the isotopic and chemical composition of E-chondrites (EC), to calculate U… CONTINUE READING
