The layer of molten rock corresponds with the upper mantle, also known as the asthenosphere.

Ea rthquakes and vo lcanic eruptions are a result of the movement of large swaths of Earth’s crust, but while the

theory of plate tectonics has actually been extensively accepted as an essential law of geology, there are still things to be discovered. New research study from the University of Texas Austin points to the presence of a partially molten layer of rock beneath Earth’s surface that might offer some description for how the plates move like they do.The layer is about 100 miles (160 kilometers) listed below Earth’s surface, and while researchers have actually discoveredpatches of melt at this depth previously, new research study released in
