Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/286098
Description: The Hadean mantle was efficiently heated from high internal heat production, high rates of impact bombardment, and primordial heat from accretion. As a result a strong case is made for extremely high ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/161782
Description: The vigour of convection in the Earth's mantle declines over time because of the decay of internal heat sources. Decaying heat sources alone would imply a gradual thermal change from the Archaean to t ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/21178
Description: Plate tectonics on Earth is driven by the subduction and stirring of dense oceanic lithosphere into the underlying mantle. For such a regime to exist on any planet, stresses associated with mantle con ... More
