Abstract A parameterized model of mantle convection, including the volatile exchange between mantle and surface reservoirs, is used to study the thermal history of the Earth. The influence of dissolved volatiles on mantle rheology is reformulated. The weakening of mantle materials is described by a functional relationship between creep rate and water fugacity. We use flow law parameters of diffusion creep in olivine under dry and wet conditions. The mantle degassing rate is considered as… CONTINUE READING
