Toward consistent seismological models of the core–mantle boundary landscape

Abstract:

The dynamic topography of the core-mantle boundary (CMB) provides important constraints on dynamic processes in the mantle and core. However, inferences onCMBtopography are complicated by uneven data coverage and strong lower mantle heterogeneity. Particularly, a trade-off exists with density variations, which ultimately drive mantle flow and are vital for determining the origin of mantle structures. Here, I review existing models of CMB topography and lower mantle density, focusing on seismo...
