The electric Moho

  title={The electric Moho},
  author={A. G. Jones and Ian J. Ferguson},
Since Mohorovičić discovered a dramatic increase in compressional seismic velocity at a depth of 54 km beneath the Kulpa Valley in Croatia, the ‘Moho’ has become arguably the most important seismological horizon in Earth owing to its role in defining the crust–mantle boundary. It is now known to be a ubiquitous feature of the Earth, being found beneath both the continents and the oceans, and is commonly assumed to separate lower-crustal mafic rocks from upper-mantle ultramafic rocks… CONTINUE READING
