    Mantle Convection in the Earth and Planets is a comprehensive synthesis of all aspects of mantle convection within the Earth, the terrestrial planets, the Moon, and the Galilean satellites of Jupiter.   Plate tectonics and the convection of the solid rocky mantle play a dominant role in transporting this internally generated heat. Plate tectonics also characterizes the present‐day geodynamics of the Earth and associated geological activity on the surface of our planet [Schubert et al., ; Turcotte and Schubert, ].

    TREATISE ON GEOPHYSICS Volume Set. The Treatise on Geophysics is the only comprehensive, state-of-the-art, and integrated summary of the present state of geophysics. Offering an array of articles from some of the top scientists around the world, this volume work deals with all major parts of Solid-Earth Geophysics, including a volume on the terrestrial planets and moons in our solar system. 4 Earth's crust and rigid portion of uppermost mantle 5 the part of Earth's crust located beneath the oceans and seas 2 the part of Earth's crust that forms landmasses 6 the theory that the lithosphere is broken into pieces that float on the asthenosphere 1 the outer layer of the mantle; made up of plastic or semi-molten rock.

      The upper mantle and crust (outermost layer) together, make up the lithosphere. Lower mantle. The lower mantle ( km) represents a significant amount of volume of Earth. It contains about 56% of the total volume filling in the transition zone and upper core. The lower mantle has a significantly higher density than the upper.

Mantle convection is characterized by mobile plates on its top surface, which have no chance to be recovered in experiments with a rigid top boundary since the latter imposes a zero fluid velocity on the surface.

Moreover, 2-D numerical simulations had shown that the heat transport strongly depends on the mobility of the surface boundary layer (Christensen, ), which is controlled by the.

Under the rigid layer of rock we live on, the Earth’s asthenosphere is like dense plastic. Because of its fluid-like properties, mantle convection can occur. Then, mantle convection is the main driver of plate tectonics.
