Mantle plumes - both deep and shallow

Earle Steven, Malaspina University College

This webpage summarizes a 2004 paper published in the journal Science by Montelli and others suggesting that some mantle plumes are "deep" (interpreted to originate from the core-mantle boundary), while others are "shallow" (interpreted to originate near the 670 km phase change).
