  • The interior structure of the earth is layered in spherical shells, like an pears. Earth has an outer silicate solid crust , a highly viscous mantle, a liquid outer core that is much less viscous than the mantle, and a solid inner core .The structure of the Earth can be determined in two ways, including mechanical or chemical properties such as rheology. Mechanically, we divided it into five layers, including the lithosphere, the atmosphere soft, middle coating, outer core, and inner core. On the chemical side, we split it into the crust, upper mantle, lower crust mantle, outer core and...

  • Subduction is a major process that plays a first-order role in the dynamics of the Earth. The sinking of cold lithosphere into the mantle is thought by many authors to be the most important source of energy for plates driving forces. It also deeply modifies the thermal and chemical structure of the mantle, producing arc volcanism and is responsible for the release of most of the seismic energy on Earth. There has been considerable achievements done during the past decades regarding the complex interactions between the various processes acting in subduction zones.
