Researchers discover Archean continental rocks on India’s Southwest Ridge

A representative image of the studied mantle rocks dredged from the Southwest Indian Ridge. 1 credit Between the Earth’s rigid tectonic plates above and its convective mantle below lies a warm, soft layer known as the asthenosphere. On mid-ocean ridges, the rise of the warm asthenosphere to the surface of the seabed forms new oceanic …
