Thermal history, continental growth, and the Urey ratio: How continental growth affects the thermal evolution of the Earth
Early thermal history models predicted a high Urey ratio (>0.7), in contrast to more recent geochemical estimates of 0.15-0.6. To potentially help resolve this discrepancy, we explore the effects of adding continental ...
The thermal and mechanical structure of stable continental lithosphere within a dynamic mantle
Understanding the interaction between continental lithosphere and the convecting mantle is not only important for determining the thermal structure and the role of continental lithosphere in the Earth's heat loss system, ...
