[1] Three-dimensional numerical simulations of thermochemical mantle convection with multiple phase transitions (olivine-spinel-perovskite-post perovskite) are used to investigate the morphology of compositional and postperovskite (PPV) boundary structures above the core-mantle boundary (CMB). Compositionally-dense subducted MORB partially segregates above the CMB forming ridge-like dense piles, morphologically similar to structures in previous spherical or Cartesian studies in which a dense… CONTINUE READING
