Abstract Diffusion of heat by radiation in the mantle has previously been associated with absorption of light by Fe 2+ . The near-IR absorptions of structurally incorporated OH − provide another mechanism to convert the energy of photons into lattice vibrations. The effective diffusive radiative thermal conductivity due to protonation ( k rdf,wet ) may be important within the mantle because low absorption strengths, as expected for trace to minor OH − contents, allow light to travel long… CONTINUE READING
