Mantle and Core by R.W. Carlson
Book DescriptionThough largely inaccessible, the geochemistry of Earth's mantle and core can be examined through a wide variety of approaches. Volume 2 focuses first on "remote" sensing using evidence from cosmochemical, seismic, petrologic and geochemical approaches. Mantle composition is then examined in detail through descriptions of mantle samples brought to Earth's surface through tectonic, volcanic, and volatile-outgassing processes. The volume concludes with examination of processes that modify the composition of the mantle and core including an early magma ocean, partial melting, element partitioning between minerals and melts, and physical mixing caused by plate subduction, mantle convection and mass exchange between mantle and core. This is reprinted individual volume from the acclaimed "Treatise on Geochemistry" (10 Volume Set, ISBN 0-08-043751-6, published in 2003). It is comprehensive and authoritative scope and focus. It includes reviews from renowned scientists across a range of subjects, providing both overviews and new data, supplemented by extensive bibliographies. It features extensive illustrations and examples from the field.
