The model of whole mantle convection with formation of a long living reservoir feeding the mid-ocean ridge

  • M. N. Evseev

This paper shows the results of numerical experiments that reproduce the main global structures in the mantle. In particular, it is shown how, under whole mantle convection, a subducting plate produces circulation currents feeding the mid-ocean ridge.
